CAN YOU HELP?
At KCAH we support single people facing housing crisis in the Kingston Borough and help to rebuild their lives. We offer much more than just advice, shelter and food - KCAH provides lasting solutions that restore the self-esteem and confidence of vulnerable people, helping them out of the vicious circle of homelessness.
During the current COVID-19 crisis, people who are sleeping rough can come and visit our team for accommodation advice: Monday to Friday from 11am - 1pm.
** Please be aware that our regular advice surgery is currently adapted to prioritise people who are sleeping rough, as well as existing clients and tenants, to enable them to self-isolate safely.**
We also aim to support people in housing crisis by:
- Making referrals to relevant housing providers, eg YMCA St Paul's Group in Surbiton
- Providing temporary accommodation in our Access Project
- Offering a Job Club
- Running a Winter Night Shelter (currently closed)
- Providing emergency clothing, equipment and food
For any queries, please call 0208 255 7400.
