Getting back in touch

At Thames Reach, we help everyone we work with to build supportive relationships. Gillian lives in specialist housing where she gets support for her mental health issues. Last year, Thames Reach staff helped her get back in touch with her family – whom she hadn’t seen for over nine years.

Please help us to continue supporting homeless and vulnerable people by donating to Thames Reach.
