Thames Reach Wandsworth provides supported housing for single homeless people in the borough with support needs around mental health, including those with dual diagnosis of mental health and drug/alcohol problems.
The scheme has 39 spaces across six buildings and includes accommodation for those with mobility issues.
Thames Reach Wandsworth aim to provide a stable and empowering environment for our service users whilst encouraging service users to develop independent living skills and support networks to help them to move on with their lives.
Residents receive support from their key worker to plan ahead, based on an individual assessment. Service users are expected to participate fully in developing their support plans.
Thames Reach Wandsworth work with other agencies such as community mental health teams and drug and alcohol teams to ensure that each service user gets the appropriate support necessary.
The project is committed to enabling residents to get involved in the running of the project, from attending house meetings as well as encouraging membership of local groups.
Residents are encouraged service users to engage in education, training and employment and to develop their skills. The Thames Reach Breakthrough Project is promoted to residents with the long term goal of getting them back to work.
