Helping Hands

Advice & Resources

We don't need to tell you that experiencing homelessness is difficult.

 

Below, we have gathered some services, tips and other useful resources that might be helpful. These 

come from our research, talking to professionals working to support people experiencing homelessness and, most importantly, people who have lived through it.

 

We will be updating this list whenever we hear about something new and hope that it helps. If you have any tips or services you would recommend, contact us at champions@ucl.ac.uk to let us know and we will add them in.
