Thames Reach ‘highly commended’ in Homeless Link Excellence Awards

The annual Homeless Link Excellence Awards celebrate the best work being done to support people experiencing homelessness.

This year the panel received over 90 entries across the four categories and an expert judging panel whittled it down to a shortlist of 21 impressive entries.

The shortlisted entries included projects supporting people who are LGBTQ+, victims of modern slavery, those leaving hospital, and needing to access adult social care, as well as innovative emergency and move-on accommodation solutions, support to get people into employment and much more. The wide range of people supported by the projects illustrates the diversity of our members across the country and how much the sector has to be proud of.

Thames Reach are proud to have been ‘highly commended’ in the Prevention into Action category, an award celebrating services and projects committed to preventing homelessness from occurring in the first place, or are preventing repeated periods of rough sleeping or homelessness from happening.
