Housing First (Homeless Oxfordshire)
Homeless Oxfordshire is the largest supported accommodation provider for homeless and vulnerably house people in the county.
We strive to be effective, appropriately challenge perceptions and systems, Inspire clients, our partners and each other. We are responsive to need and compassionate. Above all we are brave and will not give up on people that society has left behind.
Homelessness doesn’t have a postcode. Sadly, it’s everywhere. We make sure Oxfordshire is covered, working across the county in close partnership with organisations including all local authorities such as Oxford City Council.
Each night we accommodate 220 people.
We have been supporting people across the county for over 30 years; providing meals, accommodation, training and education, welfare support and helping individuals to develop basic skill to run their own homes.
Key functions & activities offered
Housing First was piloted in 2013; our project was the first in Oxford. It uses housing as a start point rather than an end goal. Through this we have supported some of the most marginalised and excluded people.
