Day Centres Project

Day centres can play a crucial role in ending homelessness by tackling rough sleeping, supporting move on, preventing tenancy breakdown, and promoting employment, education and social networks.

If you run or work for a day centre, you are probably working with people who face the most difficult journey from the street to independent living. Perhaps you have developed flexible, innovative ways of working, including outreach and specialist services, and work with a large proportion of service users with high support needs. You are also likely supporting socially excluded people to sustain their tenancies and break the cycle of repeat homelessness.

This project, which ran until May 2019, was designed to help promote and improve your work, to support you to network, and to share good practice approaches. 

Please see the links below to access resources and reports developed during the project.

For further support you can contact your regional Partnership Manager, join one of our Communities of Practice or, for London-based centres, attend PLUS Project events.
