Ed Kirwan

Homelessness Activist
He slept rough for 48 hours in April 2017 in order to change the perception his students had of homelessness. This ultimately led Ed to take on several projects which challenged the stigma attached with homelessness but ultimately the aim is to empower people to take small actions, as simple as acknowledging someone on the street. He also co-founded the We Make Change Homelessness Community which on an organisational level, brings charities and volunteer groups alike under one roof to discuss ways they can collaborate together more effectively, something that is desperately needed when funding is so short. Ed is currently putting together a small film of the Homeless World Cup from Mexico 2018 and is off to India to work with Slum Soccer in April, both fantastic projects which aim to use football as a catalyst in ending homelessness and social exclusion.
