About us

Jimmy’s is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is the only emergency accommodation provider in Cambridge. We offer a warm, welcoming environment for those who would otherwise be homeless or vulnerably housed. We assist our guests gain new skills and regain control of their lives. Our aim is to help them move on to stable accommodation.

Off the streets

In addition to this vital emergency service, we work to help our guests address their issues, gain new skills and take control of their lives, so they can move off the streets and into more permanent accommodation elsewhere.

At Jimmy’s, confidence and self-esteem can be regained, new relationships can be forged and plans for a new future can be made. It’s a place of hope, where lives can begin to change for the better.


The service we provide is non-judgemental and caring. We offer each guest as much chance as possible to deal with some of their lifestyle issues and move on to more appropriate accommodation. Our staff and volunteers work in partnership with other agencies, charities and volunteer groups to provide a coherent approach to the problems of homelessness in Cambridge.
