Accommodation Concern was established in 1987, evolving from the shared vision of local day centres, clergy, and Councillors of all political persuasions. The vision was for an organisation to work with people affected by homelessness locally and those in a precarious housing position.

We know that prompt and accurate advice may help service users to make informed choices and can often help prevent the trauma, emotional, physical and financial cost of homelessness. We all work hard to support clients to meet their basic needs and realise their potential. People can rely on us for support, advice, life skills training and practical assistance.

We are looking for new Trustees to add a vibrant direction and energy to our team with a flexible, ‘can do’ attitude.

The charity has recently recruited a new manager to steer us through the next phase as we adapt to the changing world of homelessness and the role of Charities in delivering front line support. We have just released our new 5 year strategy that aims to see us being a key provider of homeless services in Kettering and North Northamptonshire

Our busy Drop In advice clinic supported over 500 people last year and regularly has 15-20 visitors every morning.

Our supported accommodation scheme is increasing as we work to take more properties on stream.

We are especially looking for Trustees with a Marketing and strategic management background to support us through the next few exciting times.
