Homeless Link supports homelessness organisations that work directly with homeless people to improve the way they work. We also seek to influence and improve government policies that will ultimately end homelessness in England.
Vision and purpose
Homeless Link is the only national charity supporting and representing organisations working directly with homeless people in England.
With over 500 members, we help homelessness organisations improve the way they work. We undertake research, test new approaches and share best practice when it comes to tackling homelessness. Homeless Link also provides advice, training and consultancy, as well as guidance and tools to help our members do a better job.
We have a simple vision - an England free of homelessness. A place where:
•The right assistance, at the right time stops homelessness before it begins;
•No one is left out on the streets; and
•Anyone who is homeless is supported to take control of their future.
•To improve services for homeless people through research, information, training and tools;
•To change policy for the better, influencing nationally and locally the policies that affect homeless people; and
•To change perceptions of homelessness by improving the understanding of professionals and the public
The focus of our work:
Through every aspect of our work, we seek to end homelessness in England. In close collaboration with our members, people with experience of homelessness and with national and local government our main areas of charitable activity are:
•Changing policy that impacts on the lives of homeless people; and
•Improving services for homeless people
