we all need and deserve
We need your help to address the URGENT problem of understaffed mental health services in the UK.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has massively overstretched our healthcare system, meaning that many community support workers have been reassigned to fill key roles in hospitals and mental health facilities. Sadly, this has created a desperate shortage of support workers to assist people with severe and enduring mental illness in their own homes.
In response, Hammersley Homes has set up an emergency COVID-19 relief fund, which will go towards recruiting additional support workers who will provide much-needed mental health services within the community.

Our two walkers have completed their challenge to walk the Isle of Wight coastal path – 80 miles in 8 days – with a tremendous sense of achievement. Enormous thanks to all our wonderful and generous supporters who contributed to the incredible total of over £50,000 raised! This makes a real difference to the work we are able to do, supporting more of the many vulnerable people who suffer from these enduring and debilitating mental illnesses.
Donations are still welcome, and very much appreciated!
Any donation, however small, would be extremely grateful received.
Supported homes for life for adults who suffer from enduring mental illness
At Hammersley Homes, our mission is to provide permanent supported homes for adults who suffer from enduring mental illness and struggle to live independently.
We recognise there is a growing scarcity of long-term supported housing options for adults suffering with severe and enduring mental conditions, such as psychosis and schizophrenia.
Without the safety, security, and sense of community that long-term housing provides, the people in this vulnerable group are at risk of falling through the cracks and becoming hospitalised, homeless, or imprisoned.
We want to reduce the loneliness and chaos in their lives and
enable them to live with dignity, in a place they can call
We are preparing to open our first long-term supported home in Hampshire, which we hope to have in place this year. From there, we plan to grow the model and develop a sustainable network of long-term supported homes, nationwide. These homes will enrich people’s lives with kindness, compassion, and a sense of community and purpose, as well as relieve pressure on our hospitals and criminal justice system.
