Thames Reach supports homeless, vulnerable and isolated men and women through a range of services, activities and accommodation projects.
Our aim is for the people we help to have decent homes, supportive relationships and fulfilling lives.
We provide assistance to people who are:
currently sleeping rough on the streets
living in temporary or insecure accommodation
struggling to keep the tenancy on their flat
isolated from support networks, family and friends
living with a drug or alcohol addiction
coping with poor mental health or behavioural problems
trying to find work
Thames Reach staff and volunteers work directly with rough sleepers on the street. We provide emergency assistance and encourage them to move into accommodation.
Our hostels supply a safe, temporary place to stay for people who find themselves homeless.
Our supported housing projects provide accommodation with assistance for people with specialist needs, including mental health or substance misuse problems.
To prevent homelessness from occurring, we support vulnerable people in their own rented accommodation.
We supply routes into training and employment to give people a sense of purpose and self-confidence and help them rebuild their lives.
At Thames Reach we understand that isolation and social exclusion can lead to homelessness. We help people to rebuild or create new social networks and provide activities that give them something to look forward to.
Thames Reach believes that anyone can become homeless. We try to influence policy-makers and public opinion and break down the prejudices that surround homelessness.
