About The Cotton Street Project
Launched in 2018 by Signature Living, The Cotton Street Project is a Registered Charity for the homeless. The Cotton Street Project is a homeless shelter with a difference. Within the shelter, there are 18 warm sleeping cabins offering guests their own accommodation and address. Each person has their own room (sleeping cabin) and access to social facilities, cafe facilities offering three nutritious and warm meals per day, wash facilities and toilets, skills workshops and professional support. The shelter also offer a drop-in overnight crash centre for non-residents that are homeless.

How Suits Me are Helping
Many of the homeless people living at the The Cotton Street Project shelter want to work, however, sadly they struggle to get a job without having a banking facility. Many are financially excluded and are unable to get a bank account with a traditional bank account. This is where we at Suits Me can help.
Partnering with The Cotton Street Project, providing the residents have one form of ID on them, we can open a Suits Me current account for them and they will then receive a free Visa debit card. This allows the residents of the shelter to apply for jobs, keep their money safe and have the extra financial freedom that they couldn't previously have.
