(FINALIST 2017) Get in touch: reaching out to homeless people in the neighbourhood.

The association Entourage aims to combat the social exclusion of homeless persons by encouraging residents to get in touch with their “street neighbours”. Entourage is developing an innovative collaborative network which helps local residents meet the street people they see every day, supported by other local residents and associations fighting exclusion.

The project’s objectives are to gradually expand on French territory, to mobilise 450,000 consumer users and at least 80 associations fighting exclusion by the end of 2018. Last but not least, it aims to become an essential tool for social action and in the fight against extreme exclusion thanks to its capacity to articulate and coordinate the actions of the various stakeholders (associations, institutions, local residents, etc.).
