Our campaign to end homelessness together

Having a safe place to live and support when you need it should be the foundation of any healthy society. But homelessness is rising, with hundreds of thousands of people in the UK forced to live with its insecurity and trauma, deeply impacting both their health and wellbeing and that of local communities.

The next government can act to change this.

For too long the root causes of homelessness have been ignored.

For too long fragmented government departments working in silos have created policies which widen the cracks people can fall through.

Ahead of the looming general election, Homeless Link’s campaign is calling on all political parties to commit to building a society with A Home for Everyone, giving people the foundation they need to thrive.

Spotlight Policy Briefings

Our Policy Briefings series shine a spotlight on key issues in the run up to the general election and what the next government must do to address them. They are for homelessness organisations to use when engaging key stakeholders in the run up to the election.

How to get involved in the campaign

The support of the homelessness sector will be vital in achieving our shared goals.

Engage candidates standing for election in your local areas

The lead up to a general election is a great opportunity for homelessness organisations to engage with parliamentarians and candidates for election.

If our 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.

That's why, we we want as many homelessness services as possible to meet and build relationships with candidates in the areas in which they work. ​

We know services are vert busy, so our general election campaigning toolkit provides all the information services will need to get involved, including:

  • Rules on charity campaigning in the run up to a general election
  • How to identify and contact candidates
  • Tips for meeting with candidates
  • Tips for keeping the relationship going
  • Template letters
