The Society of St James

A Hampshire-based homelessness charity, providing accommodation and support to over 2500 people each year.

“We believe that everyone has a right to a home. We believe that people should be given the opportunity to develop the skills they need to lead a fulfilling life. We believe that everyone deserves not just a second chance, or a third chance, but as many chances as they need to change their lives for the better.”

carers ukCarers UK

As the UK’s only national membership charity for carers, Carers UK is both a supportive community and a movement for change.

For the past 50 years we’ve been driven by carers raising their voices together to call for change and seek recognition and support.

Looking after someone can be a rewarding experience but it can also be lonely and bewildering. At these times, you need people around you who really understand caring.

That’s where we come in
