Support for life for adults who suffer from enduring mental stress
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.

At Hammersley Homes, our mission is to provide permanent support for adults who live with enduring mental health challenges and struggle with daily life. There is a growing scarcity of long-term supported housing options for this vulnerable group.
Without the safety, security, and sense of community that long-term supported housing provides, they are at risk of falling through the cracks and becoming hospitalised, homeless, or unfairly imprisoned.
Friendship, Kindness and Compassion can go a long way.
Our Outreach Programme is now fully up and running in the New Forest area, visiting these vulnerable adults in their own homes, offering support with anything they may be struggling with, helping them to live their best life. We are working to expand this service throughout Hampshire, and eventually nationwide.
We want to reduce the loneliness and confusion in their lives and enable them to live with dignity, in a place they can call HOME.
Our network of fully supported homes for life will offer residents opportunities to engage in their interests and hobbies, their lives being enriched with a sense of purpose and community.
SAFETY, SECURITY, COMFORT & COMPANIONSHIP
– FOR LIFE
NICE reports that “Severe mental illness affects around 0.9% of the population and numbers appear to be growing. Over 550,000 people registered with a GP had a diagnosis of schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder or other psychoses in 2017/18, an increase of over 50,000 since 2014/15” – and these figures continue to grow and don’t take into account the hundreds of thousands who are not registered with the system.
If we can raise £1 for every family who lives with this experience, we would have the funding we need to open the first Hammersley Home, and be on the way to achieving our ultimate aim – to provide these homes nationwide – AND importantly, this would help to raise awareness of the enormity of these issues that we champion, which is a vital step towards banishing the stigma that is still ever present.
