ABOUT WLM

WLM’s mission is to empower positive change.

WLM has been working in the community in London since 1887. We currently work in Lambeth, Southwark, Westminster and Islington providing a range of services including supported accommodation for ex-military personnel, a residential care home for men managing an addiction to alcohol, an approved premise for men coming out of prison, advice and support for people experiencing homelessness, affordable and accessible counselling in the community, and financial resilience services.

WLM is a values-led organisation. Our people are the heart of what we do. We have recently embarked on developing an asset-based approach in partnership with Mayday Trust building on our work embedding recovery and psychologically informed approaches.

 

ABOUT THE SERVICE

WLM The Haven is a CQC registered care home for men managing an addiction to alcohol.  It offers long-term care and accommodation, providing a stable environment using a harm-reduction approach.

The primary aims of the service are to address health, wellbeing and accommodation needs of residents using a Strength and Asset-based approach. We focus on strengths not what’s wrong. Staff and volunteers encourage residents to participate in activities that are of interest to them. We also encourage residents to develop or renew positive relationships where possible with their families and the wider community.
