We work with people as they are - homeless, evicted, addicted, lacking hope - and help them make good choices that enables them to progress in life. We help people with their benefits, housing and addiction advice as well as giving support to attend appointments. We also aim to have fun along the way, and every year organise events including going on a five-day break.
We currently provide accommodation and low-level support for twenty-seven people within six different properties. Our aim is to help people move into their own accommodation within two years. More about our supported housing

Simon started the Jericho Road Project in 2001.
Why am I here? I am determined to eliminate rough sleeping from the borough of Lewisham and therefore play a key role in the Lewisham Homelessness Forum, the Lewisham rough sleepers group and I'm on the steering group for Housing First. But my great enjoyment is being at the Feast each week helping those in need. I am also involved in the leadership of the Catford site of King's Church. Home life? I am married to the beautiful Rebekah and we have 4 children. We live in Catford. How I relax? Give me a road bike and a mountain to climb.
