Further information

In the last 5 years, a vibrant and wonderful community has come together around the idea of a Museum of Homelessness. This community has developed excellent governance; democratic organisational processes; a strong reputation; groundbreaking creative and collecting activity; a fantastic range of partners and a safe financial foundation. Our current treasurer Nuala Timoney, over the last three years, has brought the charity from a cash accounting basis to full charity accounting on an accruals basis, has registered the charity for Gift Aid and has supported the charity to become an employer. We are in a sound financial position with reserves mitigating immediate risk and a strong foundation. We hope our new treasurer will continue to contribute to financial security of the charity whilst helping us build for the future. You can learn more about us on our website: Museum of Homelessness
