About Moseley Alternative Giving Campaign
The aims of Moseley Alternative Giving Campaign (MAGC) are simple, to discourage the public from giving cash to people on the street and encourage them to donate that cash to collecting tins in local shops. The money collected from these tins by volunteers and additional donations online are given back to vulnerable people in Moseley in the form of discretionary grants up to the value of £100.
MAGC grants can be for anything the vulnerable person needs to access housing (such as replacement ID or travel expenses) or for something for vulnerable people to maintain a housing placement (such as furnishings or emergency service charge money). The grant forms must be co-signed by a key worker, which ensures the vulnerable person has also made contact with someone who can provide ongoing contact and support.
The Moseley Alternative Giving Campaign was set up in response to residents’ concerns regarding homelessness, begging, and anti-social behaviour, often alcohol-related, in and around Moseley.
