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 is designed to help promote and improve your work, to support you to network, and to share good practice approaches. With funding from John Lang Charitable Trust and the Tudor Trust we are:

  • building our existing network of 200 day centres by supporting agencies in 11 areas to work more closely together
  • providing guidance and support to day centres to improve practice
  • sharing learning with day centres and other agencies
  • encouraging other agencies to recognise the value of day centres and to work with them to help end homelessness.
