Families in temporary accomodation may be experiencing total social isolation, the lack of social support compounding an already difficult situation.
Behavioural problems with children, issues around poor child development.
Mental health problems among adults, financial hardship, the problems of resettling in an area where parents feel children are unsafe.
We provide homeless families in Camden, with access to services to secure the emotional and practical support they require to enjoy a good quality of life. This involves creating opportunities as well as supporting families to make the best use of any opportunities that arise.
