Thames Reach Greenwich

Mark and Cheryl

Thames Reach Greenwich provides supported housing for men and women with low to medium support needs who have a history of substance misuse and/or offending behaviour.

There are 25 bed spaces within Thames Reach Greenwich, which is funded by Royal Borough of Greenwich and Housing Benefit.

Staff from Thames Reach Greenwich work with residents to help them address any issues they have and engage with external agencies as part of their recovery. People are housed within the project for a maximum of 12 months and success is measured by people moving on with their lives – remaining stable or abstinent, not re-offending, gaining employment and moving into independent living.

The support provided has a high degree of intensity. Residents are expected to attend an assessment centre, which has six beds and is staffed 24 hours a day, where they participate in group work, undertake random drug tests, check-in daily and engage with specialist external agencies as part of their recovery.

Thames Reach has an excellent track record of running pilot services to support vulnerable people within the Royal Borough of Greenwich Council.

Currently, Thames Reach Greenwich has staff seconded as specialists in a variety of settings, including a worker within a substance treatment engagement project set in a women’s refuge called Housing 4 Women, and a private rented sector worker within the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s procurement team.
