Here is our journey. Come with us.
As the membership body for the homelessness sector in England, with over 800 members, Homeless Link is in a unique position to see both the scale and nature of the tragedy of homelessness. We see the data gaps; the national policy barriers; the constraints of both funding and expertise; the system blocks and attitudinal obstacles. But, crucially, we also see – and are instrumental in developing – the positive practice and ‘what works’ solutions.
Key to those solutions is the tireless work our growing body of members do across the country to support, enable and empower people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
As an organisation we believe that things can and should be better: not because we are naïve or cut off from reality, but because we have seen and experienced radical positive change in the way systems and services are delivered – and that gives us hope for a different future.
Our full strategic plan for 2021-24 is linked below. We want our members – the beating heart of all we do – to come on this journey with us. To end homelessness for good by ensuring everyone has a place to call home and the support they need to keep it. And moreover, to help create positive futures for all individuals experiencing homelessness or living in vulnerable housing situations.
Commitment to Change: Homeless Link's Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy
Homeless Link cannot achieve our vision, mission and strategy without also addressing equalities, diversity and inclusion. We have a separate strategy that sets out our commitment and the approach that Homeless Link will take over the next 3 years. Read more about our work on equity, diversity and inclusion:
