Volunteer Co-ordinator

Established in 2018, Hammersley Homes is a charity that provides support for life, for vulnerable adults who live with enduring mental health challenges and psychotic illnesses, and struggle with living independently. Our aim is to establish a nationwide network of Day Centres, Outreach Services and Supported Housing schemes, to help with any daily tasks they may be struggling with, and relieve loneliness and isolation. We focus upon increasing people’s quality of life and reaching their personal goals, whilst decreasing the likelihood of relapse into a mental health crisis that can lead to hospital stays or contact with the police. Implementing ongoing support provides an opportunity to notice if there is any notable decline in the person’s health or wellbeing. There is a growing scarcity of long-term support options for this vulnerable group. Without the safety, security, and sense of community that long-term support provides, they are at risk of falling through the cracks and becoming hospitalised, homeless, or unfairly imprisoned.
