Thank you very much for supporting our swimmers in this year's Richmond Borough Swimathon organised by the Rotary Club of Twickenham.
Our Mission: To enable homeless people in South and West London to find secure accommodation and work towards a positive future.
SPEAR’s was founded over 30 years ago when two rough sleepers died by the River Thames.
Starting with a 14 bed hostel, last year SPEAR verified over 120 rough sleepers.
Believing that accommodation is only the start of addressing homelessness SPEAR have various teams addressing the various needs that either led to or were caused by life on the streets.
This includes a Skills & Development Team helping clients build self-esteem, gain valuable qualifications and gain employment, a Healthlink Team ensuring they get access to the health services they are entitled to, and a Peer Mentoring scheme where clients can work to help others.
SPEAR’s goal is for our clients to become truly independent and break the cycle of homelessness.
