Our vision and strategy

We want a country free from homelessness, where everyone has a place to call home and the support they need to keep it. Our vision outlines what needs to happen for homelessness to end. Our strategy describes the approach we will take to get there.

If tomorrow you lost everything, what would it take to rebuild your life?

There are many reasons why someone may become homeless, from the structural to the personal. It is an issue that harms individuals and families and damages communities, yet in most cases, it can be prevented.

We believe there is no place for homelessness in modern Britain. 

We believe that with the right approach from homelessness, housing and other sectors, from experts by experience, and from government and funders, homelessness can and will end.

Our vision

Everyone should have a place to call home and the support they need to keep it.

Our mission

To develop, inspire, support and sustain a movement of organisations working together to achieve positive futures for people who are homeless or vulnerably housed.

What will it take to end homelessness?

To achieve this ambition, we, as a society, need to:

  1. Act faster to prevent people from losing their homes. 
  2. Ensure if you do become homeless, it’s for the shortest time possible
  3. Provide those with complex problems with the long-term housing and help they need
  4. Support people to realise their potential and avoid becoming homeless again.
