The Wallich operates under three core objectives: getting people off the streets; keeping people off the streets; and creating opportunities for people.
Our Rough Sleepers Intervention Teams (RSIT) continue to help the most vulnerable and chaotic homeless people on our streets by providing outreach in the form of hot food, advice, referrals and pathways out of homelessness.
Our accommodation and support consists of residential projects in which we temporarily support people in accommodation that we also manage.
These include direct access hostels, emergency night shelters and accommodation for people with specific issues such as substance misuse or mental health issues.
Our learning and employment projects are a range of services to encourage the people we support to use their current skills or gain new ones in order to get back into volunteering, education or employment.
We provide training courses, volunteering opportunities and practical workshops to support people to become work-ready.
We are tireless in our commitment to achieving this vision alongside our staff, our partner agencies, and most importantly alongside the people we support.
The challenge facing us can feel overwhelming, but we retain our optimism that homelessness can be solved.
We know we can’t do it on our own and we know that it will take time.
Our organisational values serve as our ethical compass, guiding the development and implementation of our strategic priorities between 2020 and 2025.
