What is tap london?

TAP London is a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of homeless Londoners through contactless technology and innovation.

Founded in 2017 by Polly Gilbert and Katie Whitlock, TAP was born of a concern about the growing levels of homelessness we saw in London, and the knowledge that decreasing levels of cash would have an even more detrimental effect on those in need.

TAP London is a volunteer led organisation, meaning we can have maximum impact by ensuring low overheads. We are governed by, and distribute funds raised, through the The TAP Foundation, a registered charity run by a board of independent trustees.
