Welcome to Kozia
Our core intention is to alleviate the stress and trauma caused by the need for people to sleep rough on our streets and reduce the dependency on begging.
It is only with the support of you, and others like you, that we are able to deliver this vital service for those that have found themselves in this tragic situation. Our long-term goal is to provide warm, safe, cosy beds to those who find themselves homeless. A good night’s sleep gives us all a better chance of a brighter day. We also aim to offer a healthy evening meal and next day breakfast, along with showers and toilets where ever possible.
Self-esteem is a significant motivating factor in all our lives, but is often absent from individuals who find themselves on the outskirts of society. Those with little or no community support; at risk of homelessness; sofa surfing; living in poor or temporary accommodation, but those that find themselves sleeping rough in our towns and cities can now benefit from the life improving experiences we can offer.
We are collaborating with world class experts and facilitators to create regular group sessions, inviting anyone impacted by homelessness, or the threat of it, who are searching for a positive life change, to explore what Kozia has to offer. supporting them to take responsibility for themselves and their future and nurturing an improves sense of self-belief and self-esteem.
Our growing network of willing support services include counsellors, hairdressers, housing associations, chiropodists, rehabilitation services, training and volunteering opportunities offer our guests a well-rounded network that can support them gently back into a permanent home and fosters a invitation towards a contribution to society and the community in general should they so wish.

Sleep Nutrition Compassion
Having a safe comfortable place to sleep, good food and compassionate connection with others is vital for all of us. Providing these basic human requirements can ensure a person’s physical, mental and emotional health significantly improve if they have not previously been met. Ensuring these vital needs can also greatly improve the personal outlook of a homeless person and in turn their will, desire and determination to get themselves back on their feet and permanently re-homed.
