Croydon Housing First
Croydon Housing First aims to get people who have slept rough into their own accommodation.
Croydon Housing First, delivered by Thames Reach and Croydon council, helps people with a history of sleeping rough to settle into their own accommodation. The team offers immediate, specialist support to make sure people don’t return to the streets, and instead move effectively towards recovery and independent living.
The project provides 20 people with their own flat, all supported by a Thames Reach key worker who helps the tenant to access the right services to meet their needs. This could around health, skills, benefits or employment.
Thames Reach staff also help tenants to source furniture, organise bills, and create a home environment in which they feel secure and comfortable.
