SPEAR’s Homeless Health Link Service (HHLS) serves current or former rough sleepers in Richmond and Kingston. The service was originally funded by the Department for Communities and Local Governments’ Help for Single Homeless Fund and covered five London boroughs – Sutton, Merton, Kingston, Wandsworth and Richmond.
