Support Your Community Through Thick & Thin

About Us:

Turning Tides provides a much loved and valued service for the community.

We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!  The services we currnetly provdie are:-

Horsham Community Hub

The Horsham Community Hub provides advice, food, clothing, showers and laundry facilities one day a week. The Breakfast drop-ins allow external support services such as Horsham DWP and Citizen’s Advice to engage with clients who are often hard to reach. Attendance has increased dramatically in Horsham from an average of 5 clients in 2017/18 to 20 a week in this financial year thus confirming there is a real need in the area.

The Breakfast club has been accessed a total of 435 times this financial year. 89 new clients accessed the Hub (79 in 2017/18), 48 of whom were rough sleeping (34 in 2017/18).

Close partnership working with Horsham Matters provides a streamlined referral assessment service, followed by outreach support to those who access the winter night shelters (operationally run and managed by Horsham Matters).

A new Coproduction team has been launched in Horsham, which is a client led group discussing issues and contribute to changes around the services. This is a vital step on the coproduction journey for Horsham.

Horsham Outreach

Horsham Outreach provides support assisting clients to access other external agencies who have the expertise to help improve their circumstances. Specialist workers guide clients through various external referral processes to tackle the challenges they may have while supporting them to take the next steps into suitable and sustainable accommodation. Since December 2017 there have been 86 referrals to Outreach in Horsham via StreetLink.

Turning Tides, in partnership with Horsham District Council (HDC), secured £84K of funding via Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) towards the district’s Outreach Service. Consequently, the costs for existing staff are covered, Hub provision can increase and another post can be added to compliment the team. The Support Coordinator will primarily provide intensive support to the most complex rough sleepers and those who have a high risk around sustaining their tenancy. Another successful bid was awarded to the service by The Three Oaks Trusts who will fund £10,000 per year, for the next two years which will help to strengthen the services provided in Horsham.   

There continues to be a lack of any supported, temporary or affordable private rented accommodation in both Horsham and Mid Sussex for the client base which represents a major challenge. HDC are currently looking to develop a Housing First model and Turning Tides will continually look for further opportunities.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Lucy Knowles
