Supporting people living in temporary accommodation to move away from homelessness

Our projects

Charity advocating for people who are hidden homeless and living in temporary accommodation

Nationally, our research & policy team works to identify and advocate for much needed long-term solutions to hidden homelessness. Locally, our services based in Brighton & Hove and Greater Manchester support people who are homeless and living in temporary accommodation with welfare, health and housing needs. All our work is aimed at making stays in temporary accommodation as short, safe and healthy as possible.

What we do to support people living in temporary accommodation

Our mission is to make people’s stay in temporary accommodation as short, safe and healthy as possible.

by supporting people to move away from homelessness, overcome barriers to living independently, and shape a plan to secure more stable housing.


by working with landlords to improve living conditions and engaging with policy makers to drive change for residents.


by facilitating improvements to mental and physical health and improving engagement with professional healthcare.

I’ve started looking after myself, looking after my health. For me it was lifesaving help.

Our impact across Brighton and Greater Manchester

Since March 2020, we've delivered over 15,000 meals to homeless people living in B&Bs and hostels without cooking facilities.

Over 70% of people say they have improved their social networks and feel less isolated following engagement with our befriending scheme, peer support group and social activities

Our report, Lifting the Lid, unveiled an estimated B&B population of 51,500 households experiencing homelessness, which is 10x the government estimate.

With Justlife, they give you so much advice. If they can't do anything to help us, they put us onto other people that can. They are a lifesaver, simple as.
