REACT (RAPID ENGAGEMENT CRISIS TEAM)

Restoring Dignity, Creating Community

The mission to restore dignity and create community means that even when our buildings are inaccessible, our team of committed workers still are.  During these difficult and unpredictable times, our renewed commitment is to be available and flexible.  In practice, this means investing time and resources into finding solutions for individuals who find themselves stuck.

React is a new enhanced support service developed by JCT as a response to the COVID-19 crisis.   It consists of a team of dedicated staff who will collaborate, research and respond with remote but rapid support for the homeless, vulnerably housed and others in economic crisis.

The project is a collaboration between our London and Midlands services and aims to provide direct relief of need and facilitate access to other services.

Through a helpline and a caseworker team, React will:

  • Offer information, advice & guidance;
  • Co-ordinate accommodation and emergency support;
  • Provide practical help to access food, travel or other basic needs;
  • Offer benefits and debt advice;
