About us

We are a partnership of the many organisations working to help those experiencing homelessness in Oxfordshire and to ensure that nobody has to sleep rough on our streets. 

We aim to bring greater visibility to all Oxfordshire's work in this area, guiding volunteers, supporters and people experiencing homelessness alike to the actions or services they’re looking for.

Our project work focuses on filling the critical gaps in services that others can’t, and always working in partnership means that we have the best team for the job.

Our best team includes those with lived experience of homelessness. Being guided by people who have personally experienced homelessness through the Lived Experience Advisory Forum means our work remains relevant and needed.

About you

One third of Oxfordshire residents said they were “very concerned” about homelessness in the city. You are probably one of them – concerned, but perhaps not sure what to do about it.

It’s a surprisingly short step from being concerned to taking action. The Movement guides you across the gap.

If you’ve ever seen someone sleeping rough on the streets, you’re already part of the Movement. You share that street with that person. We are all neighbours. You are involved.

From this website you can find how to take action.

Another homelessness charity…?

Why does Oxfordshire need the Movement? Because life is simpler when the organisations working to tackle homelessness in Oxfordshire come together in partnership.the

We function as a shop window for these various organisations, signposting the full breadth of services and opportunities for volunteering.

If these organisations are a community, then think of us as the Community Centre.

Homelessness is complex, action is simple

Sometimes issues can seem so huge and complex that you can see no easy way in. But think of it in these terms – you’re not tackling the whole, complex issue. You’re helping a person. Someone like you. Bigger pictures are all about the detail. You are one of the details.

We make a difference by enabling you to make a difference.
