This year brings significant hope for homeless men and women in Littlehampton as local homeless charity, Turning Tides, prepares to open a newly developed drop in Community Hub later this summer. For the first time, the Hub will also be supported by six new bedrooms offering a much needed lifeline for people who are homeless or sleeping rough.
We can confirm that all of the homeless men and women who were staying in the Chatsworth Hotel in Worthing, West Sussex, have now been offered alternative accommodation. We have managed to absorb 16 of the 54 Chatsworth residents into our own projects, which places our services and staff under continued and significant pressure.
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK and on the 2nd June it will be announced that this prestigious accolade is being awarded to – Turning Tides. Our charity was founded on the sheer effort, spirit and tenacity of a group of volunteers who wanted to make a real difference to those locally who had nowhere to call home.
