Putting clients and local community
at the heart of our mission to end homelessness

About Us

Started in 1991 by a group of Christians in Worthing, Turning Tides is now the biggest provider of services for single homeless people in West Sussex. We continue to grow and develop our services to meet the needs of the local area – with over 5,000 supporters, 300 volunteers and 140 staff.

We know anyone’s life can unravel into homelessness. So we bring together compassionate individuals and organisations who work tirelessly to transform the lives of people in our local community and to change perceptions of homelessness.

We provide a warm, safe space to listen to anyone who comes to us for help. We provide real pathways out of homelessness and are committed to supporting people at every stage of their journey. The breadth of our services empower people experiencing homelessness to become confident and find the strength and belief in themselves to create a brighter future.

  • Outreach teams reach out to rough sleepers and run drop in community hubs.
  • Residential projects help people off the streets and support them as they rebuild their lives.
  • Specialist staff work with mental health issues, trauma and addiction.
  • ‘Move-on’ housing provides that much needed step towards independent living.

Our clients shape our services as coproduction is at the heart of everything we do. We work in close partnership, across all sectors, drawing from the strengths and generosity of our local community.

Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can end local homelessness.
