Thames Reach runs
the Spectrum Centre in the heart of Camden which is dedicated to helping the borough's most needy and chaotic homeless people.
The Spectrum Centre provides advice, support and care to men and women
who are sleeping rough, have a drug or alcohol problem, poor mental health, or
who are simply struggling to keep a roof over their head.
The project helps people change in their lives for the better and escape homelessness for good, by using a sophisticated range of services.
The centre runs sessions where the attendees can learn about healthy living through better nutrition and
by minimising the harm caused by alcohol and drugs.
The centre recognises its role in the local community and ensures that residents and businesses in the neighbourhood understand its value and purpose and do not suffer disruption from people using the service. Staff regularly patrol the surrounding streets to ensure the people who use the centre aren’t drinking or engaging in anti-social behaviour.
People can drop-in during opening hours and speak to a member of staff.
The Camden Spectrum Centre is open 9.30am-7.00pm, Monday – Friday.
