About Thames Reach

Thames Reach helps homeless and vulnerable people to live in decent homes, build supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives. In this way, we hope to achieve our vision of ending street homelessness.

We support people with experience of homelessness as well as vulnerable or isolated men and women who may be in danger of becoming homeless. We specialise in helping people with complex and multiple needs, including mental health issues and drug and alcohol problems.

Our philosophy

Thames Reach will never give up on someone, no matter how complex their needs or chaotic their behaviour.

We believe that the opinions and beliefs of the people who use our services should be treated with respect. We actively involve these people in the running of the organisation and their views inform the way we operate.

Our people

Thames Reach employs over 300 staff members and around 90 volunteers. We value diversity and life experience, and 22 per cent of our workforce is made up of formerly homeless people. Over the course of one year the charity helped 7,130 people. 


Thames Reach works closely with partners in both central and local government to fund our range of services helping people access advice and support, address health or financial needs and move towards independent living. We also receive funding from various trusts and grant making organisations.


However, we rely heavily on the generous donations from individuals and corporate organisations to fund much of our work in fact many of our programmes could not run without this vital support. Find out more about how you can help.


Thames Reach is governed by a Board of Trustees, who have ultimate responsibility for the charity’s work. We have no religious or political affiliations.
