Worthing Homes and Turning Tides work together to support the homeless

Worthing Homes and Turning Tides work together to support the homeless

Worthing Homes and Placemakers are working jointly with West Sussex County Council and Turning Tides in developing Skywaves and Clifton Road.

SkyWaves will be 21 self-contained flats for single people with high support needs. They  have been co-designed with a homeless client group  The flats will be staffed 24hrs day / 7 days week, helping rough sleepers and homeless  people on their initial steps towards living fully independently. The site was previously  occupied by Feba Radio, hence the SkyWaves name. 

Clients are expected to stay 6-9 months before taking the next step into alternative Turning  Tides accommodation. This will include 13 new self-contained flats for people with lower  support needs at Clifton Road in the town.  

In terms of a journey out of homelessness, SkyWaves is the start of the local support service  and Clifton Road the end point.  

Known for its beaches and seaside atmosphere, the south coast town of Worthing has a hidden side. Each night 200 people are homeless, and typically 85-90% have a local connection. Some are sofa surfing, some street homeless but all are vulnerable due to a lack of housing and support.

After years of planning and preparation, SkyWaves is finally being built. This will create homes and support for homeless people, starting a journey out of homelessness.
