JustLife

Just Life

We provided two years support to JustLife as part of our Emergency Funding Phase 4.

They used the funding to support their 'mobile' Just Life Team to reach people in Unsupported Temporary Accommodation (UTA).

People entering UTA are likely to experience deteriorating mental/physical health, increased anxiety, higher drug/alcohol use and increased social isolation as a result of the poor living conditions and close proximity to other residents with multiple and complex needs.

As part of the ‘mobile’ service, JustLife provided support and advocacy for residents in order for them to re-connect with specialist services, explore move-on accommodation and to address any issues they are having. The team also provide support for UTA landlords and managers who are key to improving the standards and tenant experience in this more unregulated homeless accommodation.

As a result of this funding and the provision of an extra outreach worker, their mobile team supported 118 UTA residents since September 2020.

They also worked closely with 9 UTA Landlords and residents of 14 different UTA properties.

“By funding this staff post and recognising the plight of the hidden homeless community...
GMMC has not just enabled Justlife to dream bigger, but to deliver bigger too."
