People passionate about accommodating the homeless

The Salvation Army KiP Project

KiP was launched in January 2004 as part of the National Churches Homelessness Sunday awareness campaign “Building Justice – Yes we can”. KiP stands for ‘KIP - IN-PLACE’ and the project sought to identify the degree to which people where rough sleeping or homeless, and to establish a means in which non - statutory homeless could access emergency accommodation. The provision caters for Homeless Adults aged 26 – 60yrs. within the Borough of Telford and Wrekin.

KiP is a community project of The Salvation Army Oakengates and receives support from individuals, churches and organisations. It provides a first response for all non-statutory homeless between the ages of 26 and 60, also an information and drop in provision at its base in Tan Bank Wellington. It works in partnership with Maninplace Estate Ltd, the parallel organisation who identifies and arranges accommodation for those presenting at The Salvation Army KiP Project.

Referral Procedure
