"Building homes and providing job opportunities to inspire, empower and transform young lives."
Too many young people get trapped in the vicious cycle of homelessness. With no permanent address, they can’t get a job. And without a job, they can’t get a permanent address.
Equal Footings aims to break that cycle – and we’re starting in Brighton and Hove.
The city has one of the highest proportions of homelessness in the UK, with about 150 people currently homeless – around 40 of whom are between 16 and 21.
Every year, local authorities in England carry out a count or an estimate of the number of people sleeping rough in their area.
Brighton & Hove ranked 4th in the increase rankings in terms of new rough sleepers

Enabling Independent living
We build homes and provide jobs for some of the most vulnerable young people in our society. We provide mentoring and employment to smooth their transition into adulthood.
By providing a safe place to call ‘home’ and vital life skills, we can steer young people towards successful, independent living
Equal Footings is a non-profit organisation reliant on volunteers & fundraising.
