We are a local charity committed to helping homeless people in Southend move away from the streets. Find out more about the key facts and statistics that underpin our work.

To do what we do, we need to make sure that we have a good understanding of the causes of homelessness, so that we can provide every person that comes to us with the support that they need. Click below to find out more about the causes of homelessness.

Whilst some homeless people do sleep on the streets, these are only those that are most visible. Click below to learn more about the people we help at HARP.
