Threshold Housing Link
Threshold Housing Link is a local, independent charity that works to positively tackle the homelessness issues. They aim to offer a holistic approach to the problems arising out of homelessness, and all their charitable activities focus on assisting people who are homeless or are threatened with homelessness. All activities are undertaken to further their charitable purposes for the public benefit.
In 1972 the charity was established as The Swindon Cyrenians (AGAPE) by a group of local people, who rallied together, to provide soup to those found sleeping rough on the streets.
Over the years there have been two name changes: 1998 from The Swindon Cyrenians to Thamesdown Housing Link (THL) and then in 2004 to Threshold Housing Link (Threshold), as they are known today.
