Standing Tall CIO

Standing Tall CIO

Description

Standing Tall is a Birmingham-based CIO set up Christy Acton, who previously founded a night shelter where he matched individuals experiencing homelessness with businesses willing to give them a chance. In response to that experience, he developed Standing Tall’s two-pronged approach to providing jobs and a stable home for the homeless. The organisation is using funding from The Fore to employ a Programme Coordinator in Bristol, where the charity is setting up a new hub.
