Rebuilding Shattered Lives

Someone who has been rough sleeping faces many challenges.

Framework’s Building Better Futures campaign is a major initiative to have a transformative impact on the lives of homeless people with the greatest needs.

This new approach provides stable housing and sustained support that is individually tailored to help people with the most complex needs – not only arising from extended periods of rough sleeping but also drug and alcohol abuse, imprisonment, mental health difficulties and abuse.

Housing First is a simple idea now being widely adopted across the UK and elsewhere: give someone their own place and provide intensive and bespoke support, care and treatment as needed. This model is helping to end homelessness across the world.

Framework plans 200 units of Housing First accommodation in the next five years across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and Sheffield.

Our Building Better Futures campaign aims to raise the £3,000,000 needed to help transform the lives of people like Colin – see his story below. You can help in many ways – from buying a brick to funding an entire building. Scroll down for details.
