Description

Homeless Action Resource Project based in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Providing a 24 Hour Service to the Homeless in Southend. HARP (Homeless Action Resource Project) is a new and progressive charity combining the services of the former Southend Centre for the Homeless and Southend Night Shelter for the Homeless.
This exciting and innovative venture offers a broad range of services aimed at tackling the issues facing Southend's homeless. Our main objectives are to provide homeless people with help and advice in securing accommodation, and to alleviate homelessness through the provision of short-term emergency accommodation.
We do this in conjunction with other statutory and non-statutory agencies such as Southend-on- Sea Borough Council, Social Services and the Citizens Advice Bureau.


Company description
We operate an 'open door" policy. Regardless of race, age, gender, religion or sexual orientation, we aim to provide a caring, comfortable and identified environment and opportunities to secure permanent accommodation and new beginnings.

Our service is run by paid staff with the support of volunteers and a major source of our funding comes from Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, various grants and trusts. We also enjoy continuous support from local churches, organisations and individuals in the form of donated goods and money.

We operate from two sites. Our Day Service at Valkyrie Road hosts a range of advisory and support services for single people in temporary and emergency accommodation. Our Night Service at York Road provides short-term emergency accommodation. Like the centre at Valkyrie Road, it also facilitates a variety of services - some for guests of our York Road service, and some for service users in general.
Every weekday, HARP’S Day Service opens as a Drop in Centre offering service users practical support and advice to tackle issues relating to homelessness. The Centre offers a supportive environment with helpful staff that can assist with benefit advice, accommodation, tenancy support, health advice, and access to other agencies.

The Accommodation Officer advises an average of 50 people a week on housing issues. This includes assisting service users to attain temporary and permanent accommodation.

The Outreach Worker is employed to help the young and vulnerable clients, and the Training, Employment & Accommodation for Service Users team enable street homeless to regain their lives.

The Centre also offers a hot meal each weekday, shower and laundry facilities, access to furniture, bedding, clothing, household items, toiletries and a chiropodist.
