Croydon Reach Rough Sleeper Service helps rough sleepers and
people caught up in a street lifestyle in the borough of Croydon.
provides a street outreach service, a short stay hostel resettlement and a hospital
discharge scheme to rough sleepers in Croydon.
After rough sleepers have been helped off the streets and into
temporary accommodation, Croydon Reach staff work to help them into longer term
housing. Croydon Reach staff work with people to help them address any drug or
alcohol or mental health issues they may have. Staff also work to support people
back into training and work.
Croydon Reach also offers a peer mentoring service. Peer mentors
are people who have lived through a specific
experience and who can use their own, personal experiences to help and advise
someone who is going through similar issues themselves (the peer mentee).
Croydon Reach’s team of volunteer peer mentors help Croydon
Reach service users in a range of ways, such as supporting those struggling
with drug and alcohol problems to get into treatment and develop a more
structured routine in their lives.
If you are interested in becoming a peer mentor with Croydon
Reach, please contact us.
Croydon Hospital Discharge
The Croydon Hospital Discharge scheme is a pilot set up to
prevent the discharge of homeless patients onto the street and to ensure their
stay in hospital is no longer than necessary as a result of their homelessness.
