Housing & resettlement support

Everyone needs somewhere safe and welcoming to live. We help people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences that need support to find a home. If we can’t house you through our own schemes, we will offer you support and advice on how you can get help to source accommodation

Who we help

Our programmes support different groups of people, so exact eligibility will depend on the individual scheme. Find out more by exploring our programmes below.

Our programmes

  • Recovery housing: for people who have had issues with drugs or alcohol but are now making good progress in their recovery. We provide places to live for those who need more freedom than is offered in supported housing but who are not yet ready to live independently
  • Vision Housing: for people who are homeless, due to be homeless, or leaving supported accommodation and are ready to live independently with some support. We link people with accommodation in the private rented sector through our landlord network across London, Surrey and Kent

What to expect

Our friendly and knowledgeable Resettlement Team will provide helpful advice and guidance, including which of our services is right for you.

If we are not able to provide accommodation ourselves, we’ll put you in touch with other organisations who may be able to help you, through our extensive network of contacts and partners.

I came to The Forward Trust because I was homeless and in a very bad place. After meeting the team, I suddenly didn’t feel alone anymore. They took time to understand me, and my situation, and helped me with many things.
