Ace of Clubs; Ex-Homeless outreach

Ace of Clubs; Ex-Homeless outreach

Ace of Clubs is community based project, providing transformative support for those who are homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised in their area. Based in Clapham, they provide for the immediate needs of those in desperate circumstances with safe shelter, food, warmth, clothing, laundry and showers. Church Urban Fund investment meant that they were able to employ an outreach and engagement worker who helps ex-homeless people maintain their tenancies and stay healthy. This work particularly targets clients who have mental health needs, who are addicts or sex workers. Last year they provided 20,000 meals, helped 92 people off the streets and into accommodation and 36 people into rehabilitation from addiction.
