Our Sponsors & Partners


London Housing Foundation

The LHF’s primary aim is to reduce street homelessness amongst single people. We do this by supporting the work of agencies that provide services to single homeless people or to those who are in imminent danger of homelessness.

We do not directly provide any services ourselves to homeless people but we run programmes and provide grants to help those that do.

greater london authority

Greater London Authority

The Greater London Authority (GLA) consists of a directly elected executive Mayor of London, currently Sadiq Khan, and an elected 25-member London Assembly with scrutiny powers. The authority was established in 2000, following a local referendum. It is a strategic regional authority, with powers over transport, policing, economic development, and fire and emergency planning.

London Councils works closely with boroughs and other stakeholders on planning and housing issues in London, sharing information, promoting best practice, influencing policies and informing public debate. We convene a regular meeting of London borough housing directors concerning housing strategy and commissioning, housing partnerships and development, homelessness and housing needs.
