Preventing homelessness

Thames Reach runs a series of projects across London which prevent vulnerable people from slipping into homelessness.

These schemes help people in danger of becoming homeless to live successfully in their accommodation, develop skills, interests and effective social networks and find employment.

Our staff visit people in their own flats to provide the emotional and practical help needed to stop them from ending up on the street.

Some of the men and women we support have experienced homelessness in the past. Others are ex-offenders or people with complex needs, such as mental health problems or drug or alcohol misuse.

The assistance we provide depends on people's individual needs.

Brent Reach works with people who have mental health issues, drug and alcohol problems, offending, or HIV.

Camden Transitions is a floating support service that enables people to make the transition from living in supported housing to moving into independent accommodation.

The East London Housing Partnership (ELHP) is an award-winning Thames Reach initiative delivered in conjunction with eight East London boroughs to provide accommodation for homeless people.

STAR is a four-year project, run in partnership with Shelter, St Mungo's and Stonewall Housing, and funded by London Councils, working to prevent homelessness across London.

Sutton Reach supports some of the borough’s most vulnerable men and women.
