About UK Homesin

logo 150x47The idea was originally developed by a member of the HOMESin team Lee Parker, whilst working as a senior Local Authority commissioner. Due to the lack of a centralised system to identify appropriate housing for people with additional needs, Lee created a stripped down version of the HOMESin portal and identified that there were far more supported housing vacancies than anyone was aware of and the situation of long waiting lists and high voids started to be resolved.

A few years later and through 18 months of development working closely with all stakeholders, HOMESin is now ready to help house people well, and end voids quickly.
