Staying at home can be tough these days: you might be feeling a bit lonely which is why we have created the Invisible Cities Quiz Kit!Read more
Invisible Cities is a social enterprise designed to support and lift up people who have experienced homelessness. Our guides come from all walks of life but one thing they all have in common is that they were homeless at some stage in their life. Anyone who has experienced homelessness has seen a different side to their city, so Invisible Cities trains people how to become tour guides, giving them valuable skills, a steady income, and a lot more confidence. For news and updates about Invisible Cities, and to offer your ongoing support, please consider signing up for our newsletter. You will receive information about how you have helped our guides and you will even receive personal messages from them.
Supporting Invisible Cities during the current coronavirus lockdown is very different to the kind of support we’ve asked for in recent years. This is because many of our guides have pre-existing health conditions that mean they are more at risk than the average person. From providing them with groceries and paying their bills, to looking after their mental health, we’re doing everything we can to stand by our wonderful tour guides during this tough time. You can read more about how we’re looking after our guides here.
The world has gone virtual and so has Invisible Cities. Millie, our fantastic Guide Support Officer at Invisible (Manchester), has written this piece to share how she has been supporting our guides and trainees since we have gone into lockdown.
