The Objects of York Road Project are to relieve need, distress and financial hardship among homeless people over the age of 18 within the Borough of Woking, without discrimination, by:  

  1. Providing temporary housing to assist those who are homeless, at risk of being homeless or recovering from homelessness 
  2. Providing housing related support such as information, advice, training and onward referral or signposting to enable them to live more independent lives in the community
  3. Assisting homeless people’s integration into the community by educating the local community concerning the nature, causes and effects of homelessness.”


A Bed (Immediate, Safe, Short-Term Accommodation): We recognise that the first step in helping individuals experiencing homelessness is to provide them with immediate relief from sleeping rough on the streets. A 'bed ‘offers just that – a safe and secure place to sleep, ensuring that no one has to face the dangers and hardships of homelessness. Our accommodation facilities are more than just a roof over one's head; they're a sanctuary where individuals can find respite, access essential services, and start rebuilding their lives. We ensure that these spaces are clean, welcoming, and staffed by compassionate professionals who prioritise the safety and well-being of every client.

A Base (Experienced, Compassionate Staff Addressing Root Causes): Beyond providing shelter, our 'base' is where the real work begins. Our team is comprised of experienced, compassionate staff members who are dedicated to addressing the root causes of homelessness. They're not just here to offer a temporary solution; they're committed to helping individuals break free from the cycle of homelessness. Through personalised assessments and case management, our team identifies the challenges that each person faces, tailoring support plans to meet their specific needs, Whether it's addressing mental health issues, substance abuse, unemployment, or other contributing factors, our staff are trained to provide empathetic guidance and practical advice. What York Road Project does Our Backing (Skilled Support Tailored to Precise Situations):

'Our backing' represents the skilled support that we offer to individuals experiencing homelessness, and it's precisely tailored to their unique situations. We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to homelessness, which is why we take a highly individualised approach. From signposting and referrals to metal health services to assistance with the foundations to work towards securing permanent housing, our support services are designed to address the specific needs and goals of each person we work with. Our aim is not just to find housing, but to help individuals maintain that housing and lead fulfilling, independent lives. We work collaboratively with community partners and organisation's to ensure that our clients receive comprehensive support on their journey to stability.
