Every year, we help over 1,000 people in Southend who are rough sleeping, sofa surfing or at risk of losing their home. The challenges that people experience are complex and ever-changing. At HARP, we will always be there for people in our community when they fall on hard times. 






The best way for us to explain what HARP does, the challenges people face, and the ways homeless people can make real changes to their lives to get back on their feet, is by telling the stories of some of the people we've worked with. 

We are only able to help local homeless people because of the amazing support we get from the public. If you want to get involved, we'd love to hear from you, whether you want to make a donation, volunteer your time, or work for us, it will all help us to End Rough Sleeping in Southend.
