One of the aims of Habitat for Humanity Great Britain is to refurbish, renovate and rebuild unused spaces and land to give vulnerable people a decent home.The aim is to provide affordable housing in the United Kingdom, it is their way of giving some people a second chance or making their lives easier due to the housing issue in the United Kingdom. For example, Habitat for Humanity GB provided a home to Nathan Rooke, who, after leaving the British Army found himself homeless for a period of 5 months. With the support of Habitat for Humanity GB and their partners, Nathan was welcomed into an ex-servicemen hostel that provided him with a private room in London.
Through the project of renovating empty and disused buildings, Habitat for Humanity GB and its partners are able to provide safe housing for vulnerable people like Nathan.

After refusing to marry her late husband's brother, Beauty and her children were homeless as her entire property and all her possessions had been claimed by her late husband's family. Not only did Habitat for Humanity GB provided her and her family with a new home, they also taught her about land rights, how to save money, and gain access to financial services, overall, how to protect her assets.
