Deptford Reach

Deptford Reach helps people rebuild lives that have been damaged by homelessness, mental illness, drug or alcohol abuse and social exclusion.

From our centre in London SE8, we offer a wide range of support, advice, training and practical help. Our watchwords are respect and individual support.

Deptford in south east London is one of the most deprived districts anywhere in the UK with very high levels of social exclusion. That's what makes our work so vital.
