What do we offer? 

Providence Row tackles the root causes of homelessness to help people get off - and stay off - the streets. We do this by providing:

  • a resource centre for people who are rough sleeping, with breakfast, showers and access to IT
  • advice and support for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness
  • recovery and progression for people whose mental health and substance misuse issues are affecting their ability to find and stay in accommodation
  • trainee schemes to help people with complex needs to move into regular learning, volunteering or work.
