My Streets is a social enterprise that empowers people who are homeless to become walking tour guides of their town
My Streets is a social enterprise. We train people who are homeless to become walking tour guides of their streets and breathe new life into places through the art of storytelling. My Streets was established in 2014, has trained 39 people who are homeless and delivered tours to 10,000 customers to date. My Streets runs three months training courses which focus on confidence, presentation, storytelling, research and tour guiding skills. We partner with professional trainers who facilitate each trainee to develop their own unique story of place. We also partner with various employers and education groups to provide pathways into further education and employment and over 50% of our trainees have progressed into further employment and education to date.
