We work in the London Boroughs of Croydon, Lambeth, and Kensington and Chelsea. We work with homeless people of all ages, providing them with housing, support and guidance to empower them towards independent living and to building a better life.

We also have specialist projects for teenage parents, young offenders, those with alcohol or drug misuse issues, and an innovative Community Host scheme.
