Description & History

Based in Lewisham, one of the top 20% most deprived local authorities in England, the 999 Club has a 25-year history of working with people who have experienced homelessness, most of whom also experience high levels of poor health, poverty and disadvantage.


We provide a warm welcome for people who are often ignored, isolated or stigmatised and empower them to gain the confidence, skills and support needed to transform their lives. Our experienced multidisciplinary team deliver life-changing services which include:

  • The Gateway day centre offering access to practical facilities, such as showers, laundry and internet access;
  • Advice & Support to help with benefits and find and keep a home;
  • Employability support to access training, gain qualifications, get work ready and find a job;
  • Learning & Activities workshops to gain new skills and increase confidence and self-esteem;
  • Personal Transition Service for highly personalised one-to-one support focused on each person’s unique strengths, talents and abilities;
  • Health & Wellbeing clinics hosted in our Gateway to improve physical and mental health.


The 999 Club is a registered charity no 1091077 and company 4238295.
