Homeless Link SquareAbout Homeless Link:

We are the national membership charity for organisations working directly with people who become homeless in England. We work to make services better and campaign for policy change that will help end homelessness.

What we do

We work to make services better, we campaign for policy change that will help end homelessness, and we innovate and develop tools to help our members make more of a difference.

We influence

We work with local and national Government to improve the policies that affect people experiencing homelessness. We campaign to challenge preconceptions and bring about change.

We advise and support

We look for and share good practice from our members working on the front line, helping others to improve the quality of their work. Our national and regional teams offer support, link up agencies, and provide training, advice, consultancy and tools to help services evolve.

We keep you up to date

We publish up-to-date information, from good practice resources and the latest knowledge on homelessness to sector news and policy updates. With data on thousands of services we identify trends and gaps in provision, to make sure you always have relevant sector intelligence at your fingertips.

We innovate

We explore new ways to tackle homelessness and create opportunities for you to do the same. Our products are designed to help end homelessness. Through In-Form, we enable organisations to improve the support they offer, while StreetLink puts people sleeping rough in touch with the services they need.

We build networks

Through our national, regional and online events we help you learn from and network with others in the sector – sharing knowledge, experience and solutions.
