Psychology in Hostels Project (Lambeth)

< Back to directory


They provide a flexible and responsive psychology service to adults (18 years+) with complex needs in the Lambeth homeless hostel network. Such people may have severe mental health problems, histories of complex trauma and comorbid drug and alcohol use.
The service is provided by psychologists based across three Thames Reach hostels which provide a ‘Psychologically Informed Environment’ (PIE) for residents and staff.
The PIE aims to ensure that everything that takes place within the hostel holds individuals’ psychological and emotional needs in mind. It provides individual and group psychological therapy; and staff training, supervision, consultation and reflective practice. By increasing clients’ psychological stability this service also aims to help them sustain future independent living, engage with mainstream mental and physical health services and find meaningful occupation.
This service is provided in partnership with the London Borough of Lambeth and Thames Reach hostels.
