“I was feeling isolated and alone, and then they told me about this. I came along, and for the last 15 months I’ve never looked back. It’s absolutely one of the best things that could ever happen to anybody.”
— Streetwise Opera performer
People who are homeless need a roof and a bed, as well as other frontline services. But homelessness is such a traumatising experience that, in order to recover completely, they also need to rebuild their self-esteem and reconnect with their community. For the past 20 years, Streetwise Opera has demonstrated that singing can play a huge role in this.
We deliver singing and creative workshops in homeless centres and arts venues in London, Manchester and Nottingham. And participants report improved wellbeing and a strong feeling of social inclusion.
By supporting Streetwise Opera you can help people who have been homeless feel seen and heard. Together, we can help them remember that they have a legitimate place in society. Your donation will help improve wellbeing and increase social inclusion for some of the country’s most vulnerable and marginalised people. If you’d like to find out more about the impact of your support, you can read our Impact Report.

In 2021-22, Streetwise Opera worked with 334 people affected by homelessness in London, Manchester and Nottingham.
