More than Homes
The UK housing sector’s campaign to raise £1m for The Trussell Trust.
Led by Accent Housing, the campaign launched in 2020 as a response to the increased demand for food banks during the pandemic. The campaign called for a united sector-wide effort to support an organisation well-skilled, established and resourced to deal with the many new challenges arising from heightened levels of destitution.
Since More the Homes launched, £400k has been raised for The Trussell Trust to help tackle food poverty via direct donations to local food banks, or more widely to the Trust’s national effort.
We know two of the basic necessities in life are to have a roof over head and food on the table, yet we see the injustice in society day in day out as these basic provisions aren’t afforded to all. Now, more than ever before, we need to work to right this social imbalance by not only supporting people in the now, but thinking strategically and as a collective to the longer term.
Many individuals and organisations have given time and effort to support the campaign, and we look forward to working with more people as we push forward to meet our £1m target and play our part in eradicating the need for food banks.Trussel Trust

More about us
More than Homes was created to form a sector-wide collective to respond to the increasing number of people facing food poverty and to end hunger in the communities we work.
The three aims of the campaign are:
1. Raise vital funds to support the work of The Trussell Trust.
2. Campaign for change and represent the millions of people who call our collective properties home.
3. Support our customers who are experiencing food poverty and address the stigma attached with using food banks.

Founded in 1997, the Trussell Trust, together with over 28,000 volunteers, supports the UK’s largest network of food banks with 1,200 centres from the far south of Cornwall to the heights of Shetland.
The Trust believes that it takes more than food to end hunger. The Trussell Trust therefore does three things: supports its network to provide emergency food to people referred; helps food banks to provide on-site additional help or signpost people to relevant local charities to resolve the cause of referral; and brings together the experiences of hundreds of communities on the front line to challenge the structural issues that lock people in poverty, and campaign for long-term change so we can see a future without the need for food banks.
