We help house people who are homeless
We work with you to help you move on from emergency, temporary, unsafe and insecure housing into more permanent homes.
It can be a long, hard job as there is a severe shortage of affordable housing and an unforgiving welfare system, but we will help you.
We can help you access grants and payments to help pay rental arrears and deposits if it helps you avoid homelessness.
We work with international embassies to help people who want to go home, get home.
We defend the rights of people who are homeless or facing homelessness
We make sure you know your rights when it comes to your housing and help you make sure you are treated fairly and lawfully.
We work with, and challenge, local and national governments to ensure homelessness is brought to an end.
We can only do this with your support
We are a registered charity with a small team of qualified, experienced staff who work with a team of volunteers who add their energy and experience.
We are funded by our community through personal giving, grants, community and corporate fundraising.
