Started in 1991 by four local Christians who took soup, blankets and sleeping bags to the seafront to local homeless people. From this small beginning Worthing Churches Homeless Projects was born. Today, known as Turning Tides, this West Sussex charity has grown to 70 staff members and over 250 volunteers and provides a range of services which offer opportunities to regain independence.
Turning Tides believe that everyone has the right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face in their lives. We believe in showing those who need our help that the wider community are there to support the and to offer hope for a better future. We empower homeless or insecurely housed individuals to achieve sustainable independent living.
