Our residential projects house 170+ people and on average we support hundreds of people at our Community Hubs in Worthing, Littlehampton and Horsham. The provision of this service as well as the up keep of our properties, costs in excess of £2.4 million annually. If you can help in any way, any financial contributions would be very gratefully received.


Today Turning Tides helps over 1,700 people each year providing a range of services including a Community Hub and Accommodation Projects. Any one night there are up to 58 people in our accommodation services. We work with them on a one to one basis to enable them to live independently once again.


From 1st October 2018 Worthing Churches Homeless Projects will be known as Turning Tides.

At the beginning of this year 2013 I was looking at being homeless for a second time in my life and once again Turning Tides was there to provide help and support. Initially through the day centre with help from the staff which included breakfast and advice. After a very short time I was provided with a room of my own at Byron Road (Short Term Assessment Hostel) and give further support with my addiction anxiety and depression. With regular meetings with my key worker and with the substance abuse worker I was gradually able to make more sense of my life and where I wanted to be.
