You might think that losing your home could never happen to you. The reality is that anyone can become homeless. Redundancy, relationship breakdown, the struggle to pay the rent or mortgage – these familiar and painful circumstances can easily end up with a family or friend being homeless.
In our affluent nation, tens of thousands of people wake up every day in housing that is run-down, overcrowded, or dangerous. Many others have lost their home altogether. The desperate lack of decent, affordable housing is robbing us of security, health, and a fair chance in life.
More than one million people a year come to us for advice and support via our website, helplines and national network of services. We help people to find and keep a home in a place where they can thrive, and tackle the root causes of bad housing by campaigning for new laws, policies, and solutions.
We need your help to continue our work. Please support us by setting up a Workplace Giving gift – just £10 a month can bring tangible results to people in housing need!
