Accommodation Concern was established in 1987, evolving from the shared vision of local day centres, clergy, and Councillors of all political persuasions. The vision was for a single organisation to work with people affected by homelessness locally and those in a precarious housing position.
By 1992 the organisation had grown and a charity was formed. In 2012, although still a charity (charity number 1146257) we formed a Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG 07945758) to support our work.
We know that prompt and accurate advice may help service users to make informed choices and can often help prevent the trauma, emotional, physical and financial cost of homelessness.
We all work hard to support clients to meet their basic needs and realise their potential. People can rely on us for support, advice, life skills training and practical assistance.
Accommodation Concern prevents and alleviates poverty, need, hardship and distress, by delivering advice, support and preventative services designed to end homelessness, build independence and resilience and improve well-being, life chances and empower.
