Thames Reach Winter Campaign 2018

Rough sleeping is a crisis that impacts all aspects of life. However, leaving the streets is only the start of a complicated journey away from homelessness.

This year Thames Reach is raising awareness about the long-term complications that arise from sleeping rough and how this can make it difficult for former rough sleepers to hold on to their home once they have left the streets.

Poor health, on-going issues with substance use and social isolation are serious problems that can impact someone’s ability to maintain stable accommodation.

Thames Reach understands that ending street homelessness means much more than just finding people accommodation, it means providing long-term and bespoke support that slowly builds confidence and the resilience needed to establish a new life.

Access to primary health care is essential, as is reconnecting with family, developing new friendships, and securing long term employment. Thames Reach works with former rough sleepers to help them achieve the independence and self-assurance to sustain a life away from the street.
