Our Vision

We believe that everyone should have a place to call home and we are constantly working towards achieving this vision.

Our Mission

  • To help people who are homeless, or at risk of being homeless, access housing and support appropriate to their needs.
  • To work towards eliminating homelessness through advocacy, education and campaigning.
  • To combat homelessness by collaborating with statutory and voluntary agencies, friends, supporters and the wider community.

Our Values

Our Values underpin what we stand for and how we go about our work, and they all hinge around the primary value of respect.

  • Compassion: truly caring is at the forefront of who we are. We demonstrate solidarity with our clients, with a willingness to help carry the burden.
  • Competence: our staff are skilled, professional and flexible, providing innovative approaches to resolving issues, resulting in positive outcomes for clients.
  • Client-centred support: ensuring the client is at the centre of all we do. Listening to clients’ needs and situations and offering support accordingly, always with respect.
  • Commitment: a strong commitment to our ethos and our clients within our work, adopting a ‘whatever it takes’ approach.
  • Community: creating a community and support which allows clients to feel a sense of belonging in which they can thrive.  Our stakeholders, clients, staff, volunteers, board of directors, funders, donors and the wider public who support us are central to our community.
  • Collaboration: the organisation actively works to establish and maintain trust and cooperative working relationships between multiple stakeholders, with honesty, integrity and complete transparency.
