WCHP’s Post Treatment Accommodation Support Worker, has been working hard in Horsham to deliver this service and work alongside ANA Works to provide support for people in recovery living in the new Recovery Houses. The teams work together to place people in the accommodation so they can thrive and have the best chance to really succeed in long term recovery.
Horsham Outreach Worker
Working in partnership with local agencies, the Horsham Outreach Team assesses and assists the homeless to access the Horsham winter night shelters, gives ongoing support for clients to move on to sustainable accommodation and builds relationships with vital services that help pave the way to opportunities for homeless and insecurely housed men and women.
WCHP are working with the council to identify what services may be needed to help the homeless and insecurely housed in Horsham. We will then develop a plan, working in conjunction with the council and other agencies to ensure the delivery of these services.
As of Oct 2017 the Horsham Team are running a drop-in for single people who are rough sleeping, staying in unsuitable vehicles or sofa surfing, but unemployed. The drop-in operates every Monday from 9am to 11:30am from the Salvation Army in Horsham, providing hot and cold breakfasts and drinks, showers, toilets, clothes and other essential items, as well as access to a number of other organisations, such as the council's housing team. Additionally, clients can book appointments with the Horsham Outreach Worker 11:30am to 1:30pm.
