One Roof aim to provide welcoming homes, rather than hostels. They care deeply about their guests, combatting the ‘compassion fatigue’ experienced by many statutory housing services by working holistically with residents. They see the ‘whole journey’ of rebuilding someone’s life, with people often moving from their night shelter – the first multi-faith shelter in the country – into one of their supported homes, then into permanent accommodation.
