Helping the homeless out of homelessness
Dover Outreach Centre
Our values :
The Dover Outreach Centre is a charity set up to help homeless people. Our aim is not to support people in their homelessness but to give them a hand up out of it.
Since starting in 2016, we have had much success in housing previously homeless people, have helped many to find work and reunited others with family following previous breakdown in relationship.
We have also facilitated repatriation to home nations for those who have been unable to find, or sustain, work in the UK. We also place people into long-term rehabilitation for drug and alcohol dependency when they feel able to take this life-changing step.
Many homeless people suffer from mental health problems, which may have been the cause of their homelessness or as a result of it. Counselling is offered to these people to help them overcome their problems.
We are open as a drop-in centre offering a wide range of services to help these members of our community to find their way back to independence.
Below is a list of services that we currently offer to the rough sleepers who visit the centre:
Porchlight and Serveco drop in (once a week)
Onward referral to Housing Options Team
Clothing and shoes
Advice on benefits, housing and work
Letter writing, family contact,form filling
Prayers and spiritual advice
