JustUs has worked in Bedford since 2014 to establish a new way of supporting people when they're homeless to help them move into their own accommodation.
So far, almost all of our clients have been offered suitable housing, almost exclusively in their own accommodation following our intervention. To achieve this, we make good use of homelessness laws to ensure that our clients receive the assistance they are eligible for from their local authority and other statutory services.
We offer support to people from our first contact with them through to the point where they no longer feel they need any more assistance from us. This means helping them to secure a home, obtain vital items for it and signpost them to more specialist support when requested to.
At JustUs, we believe homeless people probably need two things as much as anything else:
1. a home to move into
2. a fair chance at keeping it.
We are committed to using our funding effectively to maximise its impact. That means we only spend our funding on the bare essentials that are needed to carry out our work. Please see our website for more information about how we achieve this (justus.org.uk).
