ESI Media & The Homeless Fund Partnership

The number of people sleeping rough is up a fifth in the year from July 2018. On average, across the country, two people are die each day who are homeless. That is why ESI Media has launched a two-year campaign, it’s most ambitious yet to highlight the issue and develop initiatives to help stop homelessness.

Fleet Street’s Finest have united to support the Evening Standard’s Homeless Fund campaign.

ESI Media’s objective is to make a measurable difference through the efforts made by the Evening Standard and The Independent to address aspects of the homelessness crisis.

As part of the fundraising photojournalism champions we have combined to produce a collection of fine art photography.

For sale is a refined collection of photography from the extensive archives of British photographers and news media including the Evening Standard and The Independent collections.

A limited edition of twenty signed, A1 Giclee prints on the finest 300gsm photo rag paper. Numbered and signed or stamped by the photographer or archive owner. The 20 images limited to 20 prints for £2,020, of which 20% of profits go to ESI Homeless fund.

Over three hundred pounds from each sale will go towards the fund.

The London Homeless Collective (LHC) is a collation of 28 charities that have united to share best practice, and to provide the public with a single point to support their work to end homelessness. All charities in the group are delivering direct services to people that are sleeping rough or are at risk of rough sleeping. ESI Media has worked closely with LHC over the last few months to encourage collaboration and develop a strategy to deliver help the group achieve their joint aims.

The issue of women’s homelessness is particular acute. Often particularly vulnerable, they can face horrendous treatment – including sexual abuse and violence – and research shows women often feel unsafe when accessing largely male homelessness services. This lack of women-only provision means many have in consequence to hide themselves in concealed locations, even empty garages and public toilets, for safety. That is why the LHC has requested this issue is the initial focus of the campaign.
