70% of people don’t consider unsuitable accommodation as a form of homelessness.

Yet 104,510 households live in temporary and unsuitable accommodation. This is the highest since records began.

The House of St Barnabas is on a mission to change public understanding of homelessness to show that it can be broader than rough sleeping. We are showing the realities of people who live in unsuitable accommodation.
