Streetwise Opera


In response to a query from a Member, the CGO drew the Committee’s attention to a reference to another grant application, to the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, and advised that whilst the charity’s reserves were below target, the charity would not be in difficulty if the Paul Hamlyn Foundation grant application was unsuccessful. With regards to the nature of the charity’s work and outcomes, the CGO advised that the arts played a valuable role in supporting those experiencing homelessness, and had a positive impact on mental health.


APPROVED £132,000 over three years (£43,000; £44,000; £45,000) towards the delivery of services and activities offered to people experiencing homelessness (performers) across London, including contributions towards workshop leaders, workshops, performers' costs and other associated running costs.
