Welcome to The Ashley Foundation
The Ashley Foundation is a registered homeless charity, established in 1997 for the purpose of providing accommodation and support to ‘homeless individuals in need’.
We are committed to treating individuals with dignity and respect. We are determined to offer the opportunity and the support necessary to encourage and enable personal growth and self-development.
There are many and varied reasons why people become homeless. Relationship breakdown, domestic violence, young people asked to leave home, people with drug and alcohol or mental health issues who are unable to sustain an independent lifestyle and more recently due to recession, where someone might lose their job and are then are unable to pay their mortgage or rent, the list goes on and on.
Helping someone to rebuild relationships with family or friends, stay in education, take up employment and training opportunities or deal with their drug and alcohol or mental health problem is as much about tackling homelessness as is securing a roof over their head.
