The Nehemiah Project intends to bridge the gap between prison (or rehab) and independent living for men, whilst they look to break free from addiction and criminal thought behaviours. We have been working to support men for over 20 years now, both within the community and in prisons. Our vision is to show them how to live freely from their pasts and addictive dependencies, give them opportunities and passions for life, and eventually the ability to move on completely without our help.
Family members are welcome to visit the house at any point – we do not allow visitors to stay over night.
Family support intervention to enable rebuilding of relationships.
Move-on houses available within the Clapham area, one house at The Chase and another at Pountney Road. Residents who have completed the Supported Housing Programme at Streatham and Croydon are encouraged and moved there for up to one year before finding their own independent accommodation. We look to help link them with different organisations in order find the appropriate accommodation for them. We seek to keep in contact with our residents in order to see how they have progressed after leaving us, and to observe the success in outcome to be able to offer better ways of support to our future residents. Just because they move on from the programme doesn’t mean we don’t want to keep in touch with our residents, and will continue to offer them advice if they require it. However a lot of our past residents like to leave the past behind them.

The Supported Housing Programme helps men make the adjustment from prison to independent living. The programme is tailored to meet each individual's needs. Our high staff to resident ratio means that we can provide intensive support to men as they settle back into life in the community and we are able to work with men with a variety of different needs. We work with the men to address different fundamental issues such as accommodation, employment, further education or vocational training, family relationships, finances and debt, rehabilitation and relapse prevention, and essential life skills (including communication, social, problem solving and coping strategies). Together with our staff, men are encouraged to set personal goals for the future.
All our houses are drug and alcohol free and the residents are tested on a weekly/fortnightly basis. Inappropriate behaviour and un-commitment to the programme will be observed and dealt with as necessary.
