Cardboard Citizens is the UK’s only homeless people’s professional theatre company and the leading practitioner of Forum Theatre in the UK. They work with people who have experience of, or who are at risk of, becoming homeless.

Their ambassador, Kate Winslet, said: “I am delighted and proud to be working with Cardboard Citizens as their ambassador. Over the last 16 years they have managed to pull off that very rare trick of producing artistically excellent work that challenges audiences at the same time as making a real difference to people’s lives. No company in the UK better demonstrates the capacity of theatre to transform lives through personal powerment and the rebuilding of shattered confidence. Cardboard Citizens’ work with homeless people – and the ways in which their performances can open audiences’ eyes and provoke impassioned debate – is quite simply invaluable. The role that Cardboard Citizens, as an organization, has played in the lives of some of its members has not only helped change their lives, but also restored their sense of self-confidence and pride.”
