Welcome to HLG

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.

We provide a unique role in supporting and coordinating organisations, influencing the services they provide as well as local policy; our overall aim is to help improve choice, opportunity and social justice for the people accessing these services.
