OUR IMPACT IS DOUBLE
- Training and development of guides - They take part in our training programme but are also referred to other organisations and supported towards the career paths they have chosen. We use part of our profit to support them through personal projects.
- Invisible Cities raises awareness about homelessness and through our tours, we aim at changing perceptions and breaking down the stigma that exists around it. We also do this through innovative events, aimed at a wider or different audience.
In 2018, we started replicating Invisible Cities in other cities, with Manchester, in October 2018 and Glasgow in November 2018. In June 2019, we launched tours in York.
In each city, we partner with another organisation and develop a team to make it a success. Are you interesting in having Invisible Tours in your own City contact Zakia here!
As a social enterprise, 100% of our profit is re invested in the development and education of our guides or is used to organise events for the wider communities of the cities we are in.
In Edinburgh we facilitate the Street Barber (Edinburgh) events where we give free haircuts and toiletries to homeless men, directly from the streets.
In 2018, we started offering "Pampering Days" to homeless women in the city.
We believe everybody should get to feel good about themselves, even if it is only for a few hours, after having been pampered.
