What We Do

Our person-centered approach means we support people across a range of topics, from general advice to housing, mental health support to budgeting and finance.
Our specialist team offer a non-judgemental stance and work to support people through difficult times. Through assessments, we will determine how best to support individuals whether with advice, advocacy or information services and we work together with our clients make the right choices in order to work towards their ultimate goals.

Advice, Housing & Tenancy Sustainment

After an assessment at Deptford Reach I joined private rented sector scheme waiting list. One day, they gave me the good news that there was a studio flat for me to see. I went to the viewing, liked the place and the landlord agreed that I would move in. This took so much weight off my shoulders. Where I was staying had a really bad atmosphere. Deptford Reach helped me furnish my new home too and I couldn’t be happier. I finally have a place of my own where I feel comfortable and at peace.

Expert housing and specialist benefits advice provided on site is crucial to help people rebuild their lives. Few of our clients are entitled to social housing but we have excellent relationships with private landlords and can help people find housing locally. Once accommodation has been secured through our private rented sector (PRS) projects, our team provides ongoing support throughout the tenancy.  More Details
