Write for us

We'd like to hear from you if you work in homelessness or have experienced it personally, and want to share your views, ideas and stories.

We are interested in publishing blogs and comments, features on innovative new projects, and personal experiences both of working for the sector and being supported by it.

If you aren't confident to write your story but still want to get it out there, please get in touch and we'll see what we can do to help.

What we're looking for

Here's a few things we'd like to feature over the coming months - not an exhaustive list, but it might trigger a few ideas.

  • Innovative projects, innovative people - stories of new services and the people behind them.
  • Where next for homelessness? - your views on what needs to happen in order to end homelessness in England.
  • Housing First - have you been involved in a Housing First project? We'd like to read about your experiences.
  • The distance travelled - inspiring personal accounts of how people can be supported to transform their life.
  • Multimedia content - we aren't only interested in your words. We'd also like to hear from you if you have videos, photography galleries and audio recordings to share.
