Our Mission

At Hammersley homes we strive for a just mental health system that advances the rights of people with enduring mental illness to have safe places to live, to be shown kindness, and to be given the support they need to keep themselves out of harm’s way – resulting in reduced pressure on our NHS, Mental Health Trusts, Police and Prisons.
Starting in Hampshire, we are building a nationwide network of long-term supported housing for vulnerable adults with a history of enduring mental illness, giving them the same safety, security, comfort, community and friendship for life that we all need to survive and thrive.
