About Us

Our Vision

We strive for communities in which anyone facing or experiencing homelessness can quickly move into secure accommodation, get effective support, and work towards their hopes and aspirations.


Our Mission

To enable homeless people in South and West London to find secure accommodation and work towards a positive future.


Our Values

Working together
We work alongside service users, partners, staff and volunteers to provide services that meet the needs of the people we help. Together we overcome challenges.

Aspirational
We aim high, aspiring to achieve the very best outcomes for our clients. We see potential in everyone, and encourage our staff and clients to achieve their own goals, dreams and ambitions. We aspire to the highest standards of professionalism.

Respectful
We respect everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances. We view everyone as an individual with their own personal journey. We always listen to and value people’s views.

Determined
We work tirelessly to support homeless people to recover from their personal issues. We break down the barriers homeless people face.

Visionary
We try new and innovative ways to provide long-term solutions and reduce the isolation of homelessness. We are always willing to take a new approach, learning from what works (and what doesn’t) and use this to guide our work.
