We work with people who are close to the streets.
Justlife is in existence because we know that every time we don’t act another person living in unsupported temporary accommodation suffers. They suffer with deteriorating mental and physical health, become victims of crime, lose control of their life, drop off the bottom rung of the housing ladder or die prematurely.
Our vision is clear and simple…
To make people’s experience of housing vulnerability as short, safe and healthy as possible.
How do we achieve the vision?
Our frontline services have a dual strategy: to PREVENT people falling into homelessness and to PROGRESS those who are homeless towards and into safe, healthy and stable lifestyles. Our skilled frontline workers use knowledge, experience and training to carry out support work and are empowered to make person centred decisions. We work together in teams to learn, evaluate and modify practice on an ongoing basis.
We are one of the only organisations specialising in working alongside those living in unsupported temporary accommodation. We are using our expertise and learning to inform practice across the sector through: relationships, events, strategic partnerships, networks and consultancy.
We engage with decision makers and those involved in policy at a national and local level, to share our learning from the frontline and research, informing policy which affects our service users.
During 2015 staff, volunteers, service users and external stakeholders contributed to a 5 year strategy. The strategy was launched in January 2016 and sets the course for Justlife over the next 5 years: 2016-2021 Justlife Strategy: click here
