Supporting people on their journey through homelessness since 1995

Jimmy’s is a dynamic community-based and people-focused organisation working alongside people experiencing homelessness in Cambridge.

Our story

Our services

We provide people with the most appropriate place to stay, from our 24/7 emergency accommodation and assessment centre, to houses across Cambridge providing independent “next step” accommodation, and groundbreaking modular homes. We also provide individualised support in an inclusive environment, working collaboratively with people with a range of complex needs.
