Attending a day centre can be a vital first step for someone sleeping rough looking to start a new life away from homelessness.
The Camden Spectrum day centre in the London Borough of Camden delivers high quality, needs led and practical support to socially excluded people in Camden. It provides a safe and positive space for the borough’s most vulnerable and chaotic people and helps them start to think about how they might escape homelessness for good.
The service works alongside Camden’s substance misuse, homelessness and street population services to provide advice and support around accommodation, drug or alcohol problems and poor mental health. As soon as the person is ready, it will provide access to education, training and employment opportunities.
The centre runs sessions where the attendees can learn about healthy living through better nutrition and by minimising the harm caused by alcohol and drugs. Promoting recovery and overall wellbeing among target groups, the Spectrum Centre enables individuals to optimise integration into the local community and maintain or rebuild meaningful relationships with families, friends and carers.
