Blenheim and Thames Reach’s partnership has been
developed to help improve the lives of some of London’s most vulnerable and
socially excluded people.
The partnership ensures more integrated working
between the housing and substance misuse sectors and is based on evidence that

project in South London, Thames Reach provides support and accommodation to men
reducing their dependence on hard drugs for whom a crucial part of the package
is engagement with Blenheim CDP’s Rise treatment programme.
