Josh’s began working on the homelessness issue when he founded Social Bite, which started as a small chain of sandwich shops that began offering jobs and free food to homeless people. They have now employed over 100 homeless people and give out over 140,000 items of free food each year to those in need.
Josh’s work has been recognised by the likes of George Clooney, Leonardo Di Caprio, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
He also launched ‘The World’s Biggest Sleepout’ project alongside Will Smith and Dame Helen Mirren! The campaign staged ‘sleep out’ fundraising events in over 52 cities throughout the World. 60,000 people slept out in unison in the world's largest display of solidarity for homeless and displaced people and raised millions to tackle the issue.
Josh is also the co-founder of Brewgooder, a social enterprise brewery that sells beer and donates its profits to fund clean water projects in Africa.
Josh has received an MBE from the Queen, which he dedicated to the homeless and marginalized. He has received 5 honorary doctorates, a Robert Burns Humanitarian Award and he also made the Debrett’s list of 500 most influential people in the UK.
