Specialist Support Worker at Justlife

Justlife works with people who are close to the streets, living in unsupported temporary accommodation (UTA). Justlife exists because we know that every time we don’t act another person living in unsupported temporary accommodation suffers. They suffer with deteriorating mental and physical health, become victims of crime, lose control of their life, drop off the bottom rung of the housing ladder or die prematurely. Our vision is clear and simple: to make people’s experience of housing vulnerability as short, safe and healthy as possible.
