Today, Salesforce announced it is partnering with Prince William and The Royal Foundation on a new initiative to end homelessness.
Why it matters: Homewards is offering six flagship locations across the UK a package of support including funding and access to investment and research. The five-year programme aims to set these locations on a path to find solutions to homelessness.
Alongside organisations from a range of sectors and industries supporting Homewards, Salesforce will contribute skills, resources and investment to support the locations.
Today, businesses have a new opportunity to work together and expand their role to be meaningful platforms for change to serve all in their communities.Zahra Bahrolouloumi, CEO, Salesforce UKI
