Frequently Asked Questions


Why was Hotels That Help established?

At the core of who we are is the belief that “you don’t need a reason to help people”

That said, there is a considerable lack of funding available for homelessness charities and initiatives. Homelessness is still on the rise and not enough is being done to help the 320,000+ people currently homeless in the UK. Many homeless charities struggle to raise funds themselves. Most do not receive any government funding and rely solely on donations. This is not an easy or sustainable way to operate – charities need funding. If government funding isn’t enough, or isn’t there at all, then it is up to businesses and non-profit organisations to make up for this lack of funding. That’s the main reason Hotels That Help was established.

What is Hotels That Help?

Hotels That Help is a Community Interest Company (Social Enterprise) ‘limited by guarantee’.

A community interest company (CIC) limited by guarantee is a ‘not for profit’ company, which means that we do not operate for private profit or gain. Any profit generated is used to benefit the homeless community.

What happens to the money Hotels That Help receive?

In line with the above, all of the money we raise is used to help put an end to homelessness. Most of this is given to Emmaus UK and used to provide long-term accommodation with community support and employment opportunities. The rest is used to fund other homeless charities, that are typically smaller and not funded by the government.  For more information on this, please see: Our Approach

What does “all money raised” mean?

As with any organisation, charity or company we do have costs. Fortunately, we are able to keep these very low. ‘Money raised’ means the money we have left after covering our small costs (such as hosting the website). We have no paid staff, no offices and we are very efficient across the board, which means we are able to change more lives with less resources.
