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.

Beyond a Boundary

If we can afford to wage war on the country for 20 years, we can find space for those made homeless by that war. We also have to put our money where our mouths are. If we have spare rooms and can have people in our house, we can offer it through Room for Refugees. If we are landlords, we can rent at prices that are affordable. And if we have spare change, we can pool it to make homes for those with nowhere else to go. It is what humans do. It is who we are. We make space for all.
