About Branches Hostel

We have supported hostel accommodation for single homeless men and women in Walthamstow and the surrounding boroughs. Places at Branches Hostel are temporary, for up to 18 months. During their stay we encourage and facilitate change for residents taking the very difficult steps towards their future independence and permanent move-on accommodation. We support people aged between 18 and 65 of regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity or sexuality.

Thanks to the support from staff at Branches I got a job before I moved on!


Branches has saved my life. I don’t think I would’ve lasted another year on the street!
