Could you support someone to stay home for good?


Home for Good are looking for compassionate individuals from all walks of life who can spare an hour or two each week to support a formerly homeless person in their local area.

A London-wide scheme, Home for Good was designed to support those who might be struggling in a new and unfamiliar area, without a support network. Clients have reported that social isolation can be a real problem, leading to a recurrence of homelessness.  Home for Good community volunteers receive full training, background checks and ongoing support from The Passage. All expenses are covered. The commitment required is 6-12 months.  Activities include:

  • Supporting the client with emerging issues and identifying goals
  • Exploring the local area and finding local services or organisations that can help
  • Going for a coffee and a chat (or a trip to a gallery) to explore shared interests

If you would like to make a lasting difference to someone’s life, please contact Home for Good on: 020 7592 1863 or [email protected].  More information here.
