Heya, been thinking about how to help homeless this winter. Does Monzo have an easy way to setup accounts for homeless people that will probably have a phone, but no fixed address or job? (A bit like the HSBC advert/scheme if you’ve seen it)
I’m thinking we could carry round a QR code, help them get set up in a few mins, then add them as a contact so can easily give a little to help
In future, that’s where a communal pot would be cool - anyone can pay in, and everyone (or certain people in need) can take like £20 a day out (enough for hostel and food). (MonzoCommunalPot or something - see Twitter)
I understand you are all busy (and doing incredible things), but if there’s any part of this that’s possible now or soon that would be amazing!
I don’t think I need to emphasise, but as days get colder it could literally save lives (in London, hostel for 1 night for 1 person tends to be £13, and just that is critical whilst they on waiting list for housing/support)
Constructive thoughts more than welcome
