Alex Stephany on Homelessness

Alex Stephany on Homelessness

By Gemma Styles

Welcome back to Good Influence!

This is the podcast where each week we'll meet a guest who’ll help us pay attention to something we should know about, but maybe don’t. 


This week, we're talking about homelessness, tackling stigma to help get people into jobs, the disproportionate effect of the pandemic on those experiencing homelessness and how we can individually help to support people. 

Alex Stephany is the founder of Beam, a social enterprise which runs the first crowdfunding platform to help unharnessed people access training, stable employment and homes.
