Situation

We are determined to support more homeless Londoners off the streets this winter. However, for us, providing someone with a bed a meal for the night is just the beginning of the support journey. People in London are being pushed into homelessness by the system that failed them. For some, it is the lack of therapeutic support that would help them deal with traumatic experiences in their past, for others, it is the loss of the job, physical, mental health issues, or domestic abuse.

Solution

We work to provide long-term solutions rather than quick fixes for people who experience homelessness. We support people to address the underlying causes of homelessness, such as mental ill-health, family breakdown, offending, or drug and alcohol dependency. The funding will enable us to provide specialist support, including access to psychotherapy, education, training, and employment opportunities, crucial to moving away from homelessness for good.

  • I’m a completely different person to who I used to be. Rachel came into my life and I could see that she cared so much about my welfare. I started to think if she believes in me, why don’t I believe in myself?

  • Having a safe space to call my home is everything to me. It’s a base for me to get back on track and I’m really excited for what the future holds.

  • I felt so lost when I arrived and my head was not in a good place. Having a job was the last thing on my mind but look at me now! A lot has changed.
