Detached Street Work

Detached Street Work

Our Detached Projects are a positive force on the streets of Waltham Forest and Barking & Dagenham.

We currently undertake detached work in two different boroughs: two hotspots in Waltham Forest and two areas in Barking – Marksgate and Chadwell Heath.

Clients have the opportunity to interact with S2L workers on the streets and find an exit strategy from the criminal lifestyles that they may be involved in; Detached Workers can accept self-referrals from clients who desire further support from Spark2Life.

Our presence on the streets of these boroughs is also welcomed by the wider community.


“I have oversight of all our community safety initiatives in the borough… Spark2Life are a professional culturally competent project with a great track record.”

Daniel Phelps, Waltham Forest Director of Wellbeing & Independence
