In 21st century Britain, everybody should have a place to live. We need to get Everybody In to end homelessness. Are you in?
We’ve published a plan showing the solutions that can end homelessness in Britain.
We know we can #EndHomelessness. But we need the political will and commitment to make it happen. Join our Everybody In campaign, and ask your politician to pledge their support for ending homelessness for good.

'I grew up in Scotland but came to England when I was seven. My dad was a lorry driver. He’s gone now. My mum lives in East Sussex near my sister. A small village. It’s beautiful down there. Last Friday was when I found out she had cancer. I hadn’t spoken with her in two years. I’ve got a little phone and I spoke with her again today. My sister picked up the call and said, mum’s asleep, so I said, tell her I’ll phone back later. Then she woke up, and she was grabbing the phone, saying, James, James! She was so happy. I had to hide under my blankets, so people wouldn’t see my tears. I promised I’d see her soon. Every time I came out of jail she was always there with a hug for me. Always forgiving. I was fifteen years old when I got my first prison sentence. It started with robbing chocolate from shops when I was a kid. By the time I was twelve I’d worked out that I could start certain cars with my front door keys. I had my mum’s house searched for stolen goods when I was fourteen. Where I grew up there were lots of people around me doing that kind of thing, but I don’t know why I went down that road for so long.'Read Jimmy's story (1) now
'When you go through homelessness, you lose your sense of community and family. It's hard to talk to your family about your experiences... I've made such good friends through doing football. Knowing that you've experienced the same stuff makes that bond stronger. You feel a sense of closure. Your confidence comes back. 2018 has been a year of big changes for me. I'm now living in a Housing Association flat, and just one week after I moved there I got a job at a gym on the same street. Now I've been selected to play in the Homeless World Cup in Mexico later this year. When I got the phonecall I was like 'Woah!' I'm so excited!'Read Raph's story. now
'It’s really too hot, it’s about thirty degrees I think, maybe even more. I can’t even sit down for too long to try and make enough money for someone to stay, or anything like that, because the ground is so hot I’m scalding my arse for one, and two, if I am sitting down I can’t sit down for no longer than half an hour because I end up burning up and dehydrating. It’s good to see you bought me a bottle of water. I need to drink that to keep hydrated cos otherwise I’ll just pass out and get sunstroke. That’s the last thing I need at the minute.'Read Derek's story. now
