Jigsaw Group has become a member of Homes for Cathy, a national alliance of housing associations and homelessness charities dedicated to raising awareness of the needs of homeless people.
We’re working to meet nine commitments for Homes for Cathy, which are helping to shape and develop our policies and practices on ending homelessness.
Jigsaw Support, which is part of Jigsaw Group, leads on all homelessness prevention and support projects including Housing First, Housing Advice and various supported housing schemes across the North West.
Homes for Cathy was formed to mark the 50th anniversary of the influential Ken Loach film, Cathy Come Home in 2016. The film led to a public outcry about the problem of homelessness.
The Homes for Cathy group works with the National Housing Federation, Shelter, Crisis and other groups campaigning for homeless people.
