A Home for Everyone

Ahead of the very likely general election in 2024, 'A Home for Everyone' is Homeless Link's campaign outlining the approach the next Government must take to end homelessness.

If the campaign is successful, it will be driven by our members up and down the country, making sure current and prospective MPs and policymakers understand the issue and the solutions needed.

A stronger voice together

Homeless Link represents organisations working on homelessness throughout the country. We listen carefully to what our members are finding on the ground and give a stronger voice to them and to the sector as we work to improve policies at local and national level and build a movement to end homelessness.

Latest policy work

Alongside the campaign highlighted above Homeless Link's policy team are working on a series of issues, raised with us by our members. This includes:-

Keep Our Doors Open

Keep Our Doors Open is Homeless Link’s campaign to give homelessness services the resources they need to continue to support people in the face of rising inflation and costs.

Cover the Cost

Our members tell us that one of the major causes of homelessness is unaffordable rents. The local housing allowance (LHA) has been frozen since 2020, which means that as rents increase more and more people on low incomes cannot afford to keep their homes. We are calling on the Government at Autumn Statement to unfreeze the LHA immediately.

Exempt Accommodation

Homeless Link has welcomed the new legislation to regulate exempt accommodation providers. The rogue landlords who have exploited the system deserve to be excluded. But we must also protect the good providers. The government is running a consultation later this year on how the new law will be implemented and Homeless Link will be organising a consultation with our members to feed in.

Non UK Nationals

People who come to the UK from elsewhere have complex rights to housing. The law is constantly changing, and non UK nationals often end up homeless. Our members are deeply concerned with this, so we continue to work with the Home Office and local authorities to cut through the rhetoric and ensure that people get the help and support that they are entitled to.
