Who we are

We are a charity, working together with adults and children to change their lives at the times when they most need support.

We use almost 50 years of experience to support around 9,000 adults and children across London each year. We try to help anyone who needs us, whatever their circumstances.

We help people find a permanent home, manage their finances, take care of their health, and access work, training or education, as well as providing emotional and practical support to help people succeed in their daily lives.

All of our services are built around the needs of our service users, ensuring that the individuals and families that we work with have control over the support they receive. We believe in empowering adults and children to have a voice in the choices that benefit them, their families and their local communities; to enable them to change their lives for the better, fulfil their aspirations and live the most independent, healthy and enriching lives possible.
