Our vision: We strive for communities in which anyone facing or experiencing homelessness can quickly move into secure accommodation, get effective support, and work towards their hopes and aspirations.
Our Mission: To enable homeless people in South and West London to find secure accommodation and work towards a positive future
SPEAR is a charity working with homeless people in and around Richmond. Since 1987, we have offered services to thousands of homeless and vulnerable people, successfully transforming lives and supporting many of our service users to the point that they have achieved total independence.
SPEAR is not just about homelessness and housing – our aim is to support clients to live independently, reach their aspirations and live a fulfilling life.
We support clients to develop new skills, confidence and self-esteem. We know that increased self esteem comes with small steps of change and that all these steps make the difference to maintaining a home and breaking the cycle of homelessness.
We offer excellent services to those most marginalised in society and we strive constantly to improve those services and the lives of our clients.
