HLG is a registered charity and a membership organisation; members are voluntary sector organisations working in the homeless, housing, health and social care sectors within Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County.
We provide training, consultancy and support services to voluntary sector organisations working with people who are homeless or vulnerably housed in Nottingham City and Nottingham County.
