The Cardon Banfield Foundation exists to help individuals and families try and prevent homelessness or, if it cannot be prevented, make sure it does not reach crisis stage. We are a not-for-profit organisation which is responding to homelessness. Based in the UK, we exist to tackle the causes of homelessness. Through a network of "Satellite Hubs" and volunteers across the country we work to make services more accessible and efficient to those who need it now and in the future. Our previous work in Worcester has seen a successful homeless forum created and services working together for better outcomes - and we are seeking to make this happen across the country.
We were established in November 2015 by our Founder and CEO Hugo Sugg who had experience of homelessness himself at the age of 18. The organisation started from a blog post Hugo wrote describing his experience. From July 2020, we recruited a team of Trustees overseeing our work to make sure no one falls through the gaps like Cardon Banfield did in 2016.
Every supporter, volunteer and member of staff of the Foundation believe homelessness is a public health issue and it needs to have a public health approach to tackling the problem.
Working all together, we are working to respond to homelessness every day. Find out more below in our launch video!
We want to ensure there are sufficient services
for everyone vulnerable across the UK.
To work all year across the UK empowering individuals, families, organisations and the Government to support people who are homeless and at risk of becoming homeless.
To have a strong community across the UK which ensures there are well-funded and planned services so no person slips through the safety net.
