Action Homeless is a thriving local charity (no.702230) and social enterprise committed to improving the lives of people affected by homelessness. We have been based in Leicester for over forty years and help individuals and families from across the city and county. Last year alone, we provided emergency housing and specialist support to over 400 people.

Our approach to tackling homelessness goes beyond providing a roof (although we do recognise this as a vital first step). Everyone that walks through one of our front doors has access to a wide range of services which aim to tackle the causes and consequences of their homelessness. Our expert team of staff and volunteers work hard to ensure people leave Action Homeless with somewhere to call home and the skills and means to maintain their independence.

You can read more about exactly what we can do to help in the ‘Work with us’ section.

Sadly homelessness continues to devastate lives and unfortunately it’s a problem we simply cannot tackle alone. Having the support of our local community
is vital if we are to continue making a difference. Find out how you can get involved in our fight against homelessness by calling 0116 2211851.
