About Us

Thousand 4 £1000 is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), registered with the Charity Commission in the UK (charity registration number 1171590).

Our aim is to be a community response to enforced homelessness amongst forced migrants. We pool small donations from hundreds of people to provide housing and other support to migrants who would otherwise be destitute.

Why we are needed

Thousand 4 £1000 has been set up so that if you are caught on the wrong side of the immigration rules, you can find a home. We hope to be able to do more to change the hostile environment to a welcoming one through small acts of solidarity.

At Thousand for 1000 we are thrilled to see the outpouring of support and practical solidarity offered to assist people needing to flee the war in Ukraine. This is not a new phenomenon. We were thrilled by the response of our communities to the long summer of migration in 2014, the ongoing horror that is Calais and, most recently, the willingness to support an evacuation from Afghanistan.
