Expert group member Davina James-Hanman from AVA (Against Violence and Abuse), talks about why the St Mungo's Rebuilding Shattered Lives campaign is so important and what she hopes it will achieve.
At St Mungo's Broadway we help people recover from the issues that create homelessness and to rebuild their lives.
We provide beds and support to more than 2,500 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and through more than 250 projects including: Emergency, hostel and supportive housing projects, advice services, specialist physical and mental health services and skills and work services.
We currently work across London and the south of England including in Bristol, Reading, Milton Keynes, Oxfordshire and Sussex, as well as managing major homelessness sector projects such as StreetLink and the Combined Homelessness and Information Network (CHAIN).
We influence and campaign nationally to help people to rebuild their lives supporting about 25,000 people every year.
