We help people who need support with housing.
Some are homeless, others need advice and guidance so that they don't lose their homes.
Our rough sleeper service works across Kent. We can help you if you are rough sleeping, staying in a shelter, refuge, B&B, squat or hostel. We can also help if you are sofa surfing or living with friends or family because you have nowhere else to go.
We have supported housing across Kent which provides safe and secure accommodation. We also work with private landlords who have suitable property to let.
If you are housed in private accommodation, we can offer ongoing support to make sure that your tenancy runs smoothly.
You can get help by contacting us yourself, or someone else can refer you.
We'll ask about your situation so that we can find you housing which best meets your needs. We can also support you with daily living – helping you stay healthy, cooking on a budget, or with money matters.
Porchlight is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of all those we support. Read more here.
