Helping the homeless build a better life in Norwich and Norfolk.

We support people with the skills necessary for independent living
Our registered care homes accommodate people with complex needs.
To maximise independent living and prevent homelessness in our community by offering a hand up – housing, support and care – to the most vulnerable.
To enhance understanding and compassion towards homeless people in our community through education and advocacy.
More than 2,000 people have used our hostel Bishopbridge House since it opened, some more than once.
The principal reason given by people as the reason for their homelessness was that they had either abandoned their tenancy or had been evicted for rent arrears (165 people or 25% of all cases).
This was followed by “prison release with no accommodation (111 or 17% of all cases) and non-violent relationship breakdown (88 or 13% of all cases).
The team assessed 486 individuals. However, several people were seen on more than one period of street sleeping and consequently there were 663 cases for the team to deal with. Positive or known outcomes were recorded in 515 cases.
448 cases (or 68% of all cases) had a Norwich connection.
