Working at the heart of homelessness

Building additional accommodation

Building additional accommodation

We wouldn’t have been able to achieve all we have over the last year, or turn our future goals into realities, without your generous support. So thank you so very much.

In the year ahead, we are pleased to be building additional accommodation on our site, which has been a goal of ours for a long time. This will bring our capacity up to 155, and mean we can support more people than ever before to move on from homelessness. 

With unemployment on the rise and rough sleeping in the borough of Newham at an all-time high, this development could not have come at a more important time. We’re also looking forward to continuing to collaborate with partners to ensure that those who come to us for help have access to the best possible support, and we have exciting plans to deliver services at other sites in the borough too.

Thank you to everyone involved in helping to make such a difference to so many people’s lives, in the midst of a housing crisis and global pandemic. We couldn’t do it without you.

"These plans mean that, each year, we will be able to help even more people to move on from homelessness for good. The thoughtful design of the project will ensure that residents have a safe home which they can feel proud of and the support they need on their journey out of homelessness. With rough sleeping and homelessness in Newham increasing we cannot open these units soon enough." - Amanda Dubarry, Chief Executive
