Safety, security, comfort and friendship for adults with enduring mental illness
Established in 2018 in Lymington, Hammersley Homes is a local charity with a big mission: to provide a home for life, for adults suffering from enduring mental illness –people whose condition cannot be cured and who will not recover.
Following the introduction of the “Care in the Community” initiative in the 1980’s, many of the residences, homes and hospital wards which used to accommodate adults who suffered from enduring mental illness were closed, and the closures continue.
Now, all too frequently, these unfortunate and vulnerable people live alone, often in chaos and unable to manage; or they are homeless; or live with family who one day won’t be there for them. They live too often without friends or a sense of community, a sense of purpose – things we all need for our general wellbeing.
Hammersley Homes aims to provide long-term homes for this vulnerable sector, reducing their loneliness and chaos by giving them a safe and secure home for life, a community to live in with friends, and bring some fun, meaning and purpose back into their lives.
Living in a Hammersley Homes community will introduce safety, security, routine and purpose to their lives, and keep them occupied, entertained and out of trouble with the law.
Everybody can help in some small way to build the first Hammersley Home!
Hammersley Homes needs volunteers as well as funds to build the very first local Home. If you are interested in getting involved in any way, the charity would love to hear from you.
But right now you can help by having fun and bidding for one of the fantastic auction lots at the Online Auction - including a day sailing on our fabulous Solent close to home.
The auction will close at 10.30pm next Saturday the 16th November during the Hammersley Homes Gala Ball, and you'll find out then whether you have been successful.
