Thames Reach Wandsworth
People with poor mental health or with a substance misuse problem will often require a lot of support on their journeys away from homelessness.
Thames Reach Wandsworth provides supported housing for single homeless people in the London Borough of Wandsworth who have mental health support needs or drug and alcohol problems.
The project houses up to 39 residents across 6 houses. Staff work with residents to agree individual support plans to enable them to become more independent, develop new skills, access training and employment opportunities, and build the support networks to help them move forward with their lives.
Residents are encouraged to get involved in the running of the project and to join groups operating in the local community.
The project works with a wide range of other agencies to provide assistance and opportunities for residents, such as the Wandsworth Volunteer Bureau and The SUN Project – a local coping and crisis-support group.
Wandsworth Council Housing Options team have priority referral rights to the project, but if they cannot fill a vacancy, spaces then become available for other agencies.
