People become homeless for different reasons. Members of the homeless community often have multiple and complex needs, in addition to their housing needs. This can include poor physical health and mental health difficulties, alongside harmful coping mechanisms often caused by past trauma and abuse, or adverse life events, such as bereavement, job loss or relationship breakdown. AMAT UK works with each individual to tackle the reasons they became homeless and ensure they never are again.
