Our commitment to provide shelter and housing for those who need it

At City Life, we are committed to helping those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness access accommodation. Southampton is a City of Sanctuary, we are working with others to make our city a warm and welcoming place for refugees and asylum seekers. If you are from overseas and new to Southampton, visit our City of Sanctuary information here.

Winter Beds

Volunteers from City Life and other churches work together to provide overnight accommodation and meals for those sleeping rough in our city during the coldest months of the year. If you would like more information regarding winter beds, please contact us.

Hope into Action Southampton

Hope into Action Southampton works to end homelessness by providing homes to the homeless and vulnerably housed. Tenants are empowered by staff and volunteers to break the cycle of homelessness for good.
