Homeless Link is the national membership charity for frontline homelessness agencies and the wider housing with health, care and support sector in England. With over 700 members, we work to improve services and campaign for policy change that will help end homelessness and ensure that everyone has a place to call home and the support they need to keep it.
Our member agencies range from hostels, day centres, street-based outreach work and resettlement suppport to wider supported housing, health and social care providers. Our focus is to change the way that we, as a society, think and act towards single people who become homeless and other vulnerable groups. We do this by influencing policy and strategy at a national and local level. We also work, in partnership with our members, to ensure services for the most vulnerable in society are the best they can be and to seek out alternative solutions. We give information, advice and a fresh perspective; connecting organisations and people. In addition, we provide a range of support to our members via consultancy, events and training.
Finally, we are actively seeking to increase diversity within our organisation and would greatly welcome interest from people with direct experience of homelessness, from a black or minority ethnic background and/or with a disability.
