Welcome to HLG

SoundingBoardHLG 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.

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. HLG is financially assisted by Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
