About Homeless Rooms Birmingham
The original idea for Homeless Rooms came from Mark Peters, a social entrepreneur in Birmingham.
He was speaking to a few of his prospective tenants (mostly young people) who were searching to find a place to live, however, every landlord/agent they approached on Gumtree, Rightmove, Zoopla etc wanted expensive deposits and/or high fees. These fees left them trapped in homelessness and or sofa surfing and damaged their wellbeing.
One of the young people suggested that a Rightmove for Homeless People was needed! Lightbulb! Mark then approached fellow social entrepreneur, Lee Blake who developed the idea further. The pair decided to start Homeless Rooms to try and help all those people who are sleeping rough or sofa surfing.
