ABOUT US

‘Simon was created to meet the need where the need was greatest: it aims to come in where others leave off and to work for those unable to accept existing help, or for whom no adequate provision exists.’ Anton Wallich-Clifford, Simon Community Founder.

Established in 1971 in response to a homelessness crisis in Belfast, Simon Community has grown to become Northern Ireland’s leading homelessness charity and service provider. From a beginning of just one house, two full time staff and a few volunteers in Belfast, Simon Community NI now helps over 3000 people every year across 22 projects throughout Northern Ireland with a staff count of 300 and 50 volunteers. We work without judgement to support people who are, or are at risk of, becoming homeless.

OUR VISION

Homelessness is ended.

 

Our Mission:

We exist to support people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to achieve a meaningful and independent place in their community.

  2. Positively influence public policy to make homelessness unacceptable.
  3. Be a sustainable, ambitious organisation recognised for its excellence in service delivery as well as staff care and development.

Our Values:

  1. We are non-judgemental.
  2. We exist to support our clients and meet their needs.
  3. We are trustworthy and focused on ending homelessness.
  4. We are dedicated to the people we support.
