OSP Group continues support of One Big Family – Helping the Homeless
One Big Family was started by Liz Shaw after a chance meeting with a homeless ex-serviceman in London in early 2015. His suggestions about what items are most requested by those who are homeless led to Liz developing ‘essential kits’ to distribute to those in need, initially in London and later in Kent and Yorkshire as well.
One Big Family’s workers are unpaid and the charity relies on private and corporate donations.
Liz Shaw, founder of One Big Family: “Homelessness happens to all kinds of people including those with mental illness, distressed backgrounds, chemical dependence or other forms of troubled lives. We’re here to provide practical help and depend on OSP Group and others to give us their kind support.”
