Broadway was created on the 1st April 2002 from the merger of two London homelessness agencies, Housing Services Agency and Riverpoint.
Riverpoint was based in West London and had been at the forefront of the campaign to provide shelter and support to homeless and vulnerable people since 1977. The charity housed and cared for nearly 1500 single homeless people each year. In addition to housing and support, Riverpoint's West London Contact and Assessment Team was the capital's most successful Rough Sleepers Unit contracted team, providing outreach, assessment and support for long-term rough sleepers as part of the Government's Rough Sleepers Initiative.
Camden based Housing Services Agency had promoted successful resettlement since 1981, providing services both directly to homeless people and to agencies who worked with them. Direct provision included flats and bedsits for 330 homeless people in 11 London boroughs. The organisation was at the forefront of the Rough Sleepers Initiative delivering the Clearing House and managing CHAIN, previously the Rough Sleepers Register.
