Preventing and relieving homelessness for single people in Brent
The Single Homeless Prevention Service (SHPS) Brent is a collaboration between a group of organisations with a common goal: to prevent and relieve homelessness for single people in Brent aged 18 and over.
The service provides support to those who are threatened with homelessness and is run in partnership with the London borough of Brent. They refer people to the service for support with their housing needs in line with the objectives under the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017.
We have two core delivery partners: Crisis and Thames Reach. Together, these organisations have over 80 years’ experience of working in the homelessness sector, engaging and supporting people to secure and sustain accommodation suitable for them.
Our mission is to prevent homelessness, improve overall well-being for those worked with and to reduce social and economic exclusion.
SHPS Brent was recently commended at the London Homelessness Awards 2018 – the country’s leading homelessness awards.
Sponsored by the London Housing Foundation, Crisis, Shelter and the London Housing Directors, the LHA awards recognise the creativity and imagination that agencies bring to services for homeless people.
