How we help people
At Your Place, a person experiencing homelessness can access the one-to-one support they need to rebuild their life and reconnect with the world.
A supported journey to independent living
Everyone needs a safe place to live. But when someone becomes homeless, they lose much more than the roof over their head.
Your Place provides a hopeful, healing space where people can access the support they need to regain their self-belief and rebuild their lives. That could mean working with trauma, resolving health issues, accessing financial help, housing and job opportunities, or cultivating the skills and confidence to live independently.
There are three main aspects of our work:
• A safe place to live
• One-to-one support
• Pathway to independence
At Your Place, we take a holistic approach to solving homelessness, its root causes and its outcomes. Learn more about our specialist services and how they connect with our wider community.
Homelessness can happen to anyone, and we’re here to help if it does
Our services in the London Borough of Newham exist to help people in our community to get back on their feet if they lose their home.
The services are tailored to people with different support needs, but all have the same goal - to end homelessness one person at a time.
We work in partnership with referral agencies, rather than accepting individual referrals directly. If you are an organisation interested in making a referral for an adult into one of our services or finding out more, please get in touch using the details below.
If you are an individual and you have or are at risk of losing your home, find out what support you can access.
"When I was homeless, I felt no-one was hearing me. I asked for help with housing, but I didn’t meet the criteria."
After being supported at Your Place, Nur went on to do a housing course and now helps young people who are struggling to find affordable accommodation.
"This place gave me my life back. My journey has been drastic, but I’ve managed to go back and get my degree in psychological sciences. Whatever I end up doing, hopefully it’ll be something to help other people."
Like many residents at Your Place, Krista found the care and support she needed to rebuild her life.
