It Takes a City (Cambridge)

It Takes a City was established at the Cambridge Summit on Homelessness in 2018 as a community response to rough sleeping and homelessness, bringing together organisations and people from the public, private and third sectors, and those with lived experience of homelessness, to develop new solutions and services that complement and support the work of local authorities and agencies.

Ideas are developed in Action Groups - groups have conversations that lead to action that lead to change - initially focused on making information available; analysing homelessness data; creating new housing every year; ensuring the voices of women, young people, and those with lived experience are heard; encouraging employment; and providing enduring wrap-around support. Each has resulted in change happening.

All lead to our vision that everyone should have somewhere to call home that is safe, secure, connected, supported, a place to flourish and build community.

Our role is to influence, advocate, facilitate, resource and encourage change - bringing finance, people and partners together to make a lasting difference. Will you come on board?
