Croydon Reach

Rough sleeper on the street

Croydon Reach Rough Sleeper Service helps rough sleepers and people caught up in a street lifestyle in the borough of Croydon.


Croydon Reach 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. Read more about this scheme
