Our Health + Wellbeing programme helps people impacted by homelessness to manage their mental health, build emotional wellbeing and overcome barriers to independence.

Many people impacted by homelessness have experienced past trauma, and report having mental health difficulties. Our psychological wellbeing therapists and counsellors are there to respond to this.

We use lots of different approaches to support customers. These include one-to-one counselling, group workshops and traditional talking therapy. We also run workshops to engage people through activities like music, art, exercise and even gaming.

The Health + Wellbeing programme also tackles barriers to employment. It does this through one-to-one support and goal-setting, as well as  workshops about managing anxiety and stress in the workplace. As such, it provides people with tools to manage their mental health and wellbeing that set them up for independence.

By working in a psychologically informed way we can address the barriers facing people impacted by homelessness. We can equip them to move forward with their mental and physical health toward happy, independent futures.

Working with the Health + Wellbeing team

Partnerships

We work with several partners across London who refer clients to our team. We pride ourselves on being able to deliver a service that is geographically accessible to clients, flexible, and rapid in its response to their needs. Time and time again we see the significant long-term impact of this service, as each person is offered follow-ups after their sessions, and the possibility of re-referral in future.
