Harries House

Harries House is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day to provide direct access accommodation and support to those who find themselves homeless as well as offering short term rooms for those who need time to work out their next steps.

This is a brand new service, building on our experience of running a Night Shelter for 30 years. Harries House is fully staffed, providing a hybrid of emergency and short term accommodation for those most in need of support to get off the streets and into somewhere they can call home. We accept Uk and Non-Uk Nationals and work closely with other agencies as well as drawing on expertise from within King’s Arms Project to give high quality advice and care.

In a warm, safe environment we empower people to make the next best steps for them whilst ensuring they have access to food, washing facilities, clean clothes and medical support. Our friendly staff work hard to create a family environment where those sheltering with us feel welcomed and part of a small community.

What the team say...

It's been a privilege to see many of our clients with no recourse to public funds go from literally having nothing to be in secure housing with an income, a hope and a future.

Outreach Team

The thing I love most about working for KAP is the team that I am in and how everyone looks out for each other, I love that we can pray together as a team when we feel like we have exhausted all visible options and we then see answers.

I have worked closely with one resident who has really struggled with both his physical and mental health since the first day I met him but has recently been prescribed the correct medication finally. He said he  'felt the most hope he had felt in over a year about his future' and was making jokes which he hadn't done before and looked like a new man!

Accommodation Team

Many of those I and my team work with have been through serious trauma both in their home countries and in the UK. Being able to bring hope to them by providing practical and emotional support is a huge privilege. 

Welcoming a new family from Syria has been wonderful. As their support worker I went to meet them at the airport. Journeying with them as they adjust to life in the UK has been an absolute joy.

Refugee and Migrant Services Team

It is such an amazing thing to be part of this team and make a real difference in people's lives.  It is really rewarding when we support vulnerable clients and see their difficult situation change to the better.
