What we can offer you

We provide a preventative and enabling service in a positive, safe environment where individuals are treated with dignity and respect and supported to overcome the issues that have led to homelessness. We work closely with both statutory and voluntary services, providing pathways into drug and alcohol treatment and providing access to physical and mental health care. We also provide innovative pathways into employment, training and education.Stages social enterprise chef John with a resident trainee

Our aim is to prevent homelessness by giving individuals the skills they need to sustain independence and move on with their lives.
Our single homeless services include large accommodation based services with 24 hour support, smaller projects designed for more independent living and floating support services. We use techniques such as Life Coaching, Solution Focused Therapies and Motivational Interviewing to bring out the best in each individual, helping them to achieve their goals and reach their true potential

PJ’s Story

PJ was referred to The Quays in Sittingbourne by his probation worker following his release from prison. Our joint working arrangement with the Probation service enabled his referral to be processed quickly, reducing the risks of reoffending. PJ stayed at The Quays for just over five months, during which time he obtained two qualifications, attended three training courses, re established contact with his family, found new accommodation and has not reoffended since leaving prison. “Going to prison led to me being homeless.

I needed a place on release and my probation [officer] found The Quays. When I came here I was fearful as I’d stayed in hostels before and they were just a breeding ground for drugs and crime, but The Quays has been a safe stepping stone for me, a safe environment which has enabled me to focus on my priorities in  setting  ccommodation back in Surrey, to be near my family. I’ve now got a place in Surrey, so I’m very grateful to The Quays and my keyworker Jo who has been there  for me. I was offered a lot of support, emotional support, support in my physical wellbeing and improving my academic skills. This support helped me because it showed me The Quays cared about me personally, which gave me confidence in them and trust.”
