Routes to Roots

Routes to Roots

Founded on Christian principles, Routes to Roots seeks to help all homeless and vulnerably housed people in Poole regardless of their faith.

Since 2000 Routes to Roots has supported rough sleepers, vulnerably housed (sofa surfers or in B&Bs) and newly housed (formerly homeless) adults in Poole.

At five drop-ins we provide basic necessities, such as showers, hot food, clothing and sleeping bags, and offer outreach access to the Poole addictions team, mental health workers, Poole rough sleeper outreach team and housing advisers.

We also offer supported housing for three rough sleepers, working with the local authorities to move them on into independent accommodation.
