Working together to end homelessness in Cambridge
Our partners are key to Jimmy’s success and working with people experiencing homelessness in Cambridge. We work in partnership with a range of organisations across Cambridge. These are examples of some of the many partners that we work with.
New Meaning Foundation (NMF) are proud to have worked with Allia and Jimmy’s on the first modular SPACE© Homes project of its type in the UK. As well as building comfortable homes offering independence for formerly-homeless residents, NMF also train those from the most deprived backgrounds. The mission is to help them to acquire construction and workplace skills in a supportive and friendly environment. In the last three years 24 of 30 trainees from a NEET background have found sustainable work, eight of those with us.

Allia’s partnership with Jimmy’s enabled us to pilot the vision of relocatable modular homes in Cambridge, and it’s really exciting that the model is now seen as one of the key ways to respond to homelessness in the city. This has only been possible because of the excellent support the Jimmy’s team have provided to the residents, whose positive experience of ‘the mods’ makes it all worthwhile.

We are delighted that our SoloHaus modular homes are making a real difference to homeless people being supported by Jimmy’s Cambridge. Mark Allan and his team are doing amazing work to provide a solution to homelessness and Hill is thrilled to be playing a part in helping to tackle the housing crisis in the city.
Regional Director, Hill
Modular Homes have provided Jimmy’s with some top-quality housing and ensured that valuable transitional accommodation is available for people who urgently need it. Cambridge City Council remains committed to supporting hardworking organisations like Jimmy’s who can make all the difference in helping people get their lives back on track
