Specialist services

Our street outreach services work with vulnerable people who sleep rough on the streets, many of whom have additional needs including mental health problems and drug or alcohol dependencies. We work to understand the complex reasons why someone might be sleeping rough, and provide support tailored to their needs, whether that’s getting them back in touch with their family, or helping them address traumatic experiences from their past. 

We currently provide street outreach services in Camden, Lambeth, Cambridge and Leeds.

Domestic Abuse

The Portal - East Sussex

CGL has delivered domestic abuse services in the South East for twenty years. Working across East Sussex and Brighton & Hove, our service provides information, advocacy and practical and emotional support to women and men living with domestic abuse and violence.

We help victims explore their options, including housing, safety, legal issues and guidance through the court process. We also put them in touch with other organisations that may be able to address their concerns, including refuge accommodation and sanctuary schemes. Our aim is to support people to make informed choices.
