City Taxis provide The Archer Project with a home for another year!

18th October 2022

After almost a year at City HQ, City Taxis have invited The Archer Project to stay as their City Charity Incubators for 2023.

To support charities in the community, City Taxis launched their City Charity Incubator initiative in 2020. The incubator was set up to support a local charity who could join them in their offices for 12 months, taking away some of the financial and business pressures charities face.

City Taxis took on The Archer Project as their Charity Incubators for 2022, after the charity’s premises suffered severe damage from an arson attack, leaving them without a base to work from.

The Archer Project is a place where homeless and vulnerable people can change their lives for the better. The charity’s mission is to help homeless people achieve a better life by supporting them to develop their independence, improve their ability to tackle setbacks and help to identify and change negative behaviour to improve their wellbeing.

City Taxis made the decision to invite The Archer Project to stay for another year following an extremely tough period for the charity, where donations have dramatically dropped and the team are working flat out to keep the project alive.

Lynne Urpeth, Fundraising Team Manager of Archer Project, said:

“The support City Taxis have offered us has been wonderful.

Not only have they provided us with a brilliant workspace for another year, but they have consistently supported and shared our work while organising fundraising activities for us. 

The Archer Project is incredibly thankful for everything City Taxis has done for us.”  

Amy Tingle, Business Director of City Taxis, said:

“We are so pleased to be able to support the Archer Project for another year at our Charity Hub.

They have truly become part of the City Taxis family over the last year and it has been a joy getting to know the team and the charity better.

Archer Project make such a difference to our homeless community and we feel privileged to play our small part to support such an amazing charity.”

In a bid to further understand homelessness and raise awareness around the issue of rough sleeping, The Archer Project’s CEO Tim Renshaw recently took to the streets for a two-week sleepout. The phenomenal gesture was documented on Tim’s LinkedIn page, giving a deep insight into the fears and emotions of the homeless and vulnerable.
