Church Homeless Trust

Supporting Homeless People

We help homeless people to rebuild their lives with support grants that meet their individual needs. They may be sleeping rough, in a hostel, women in refuges, young people, families, veterans, or refugees. We help homeless people of all ages, faiths, and nationalities to get back on their feet.

Situation

The only thing uniting our beneficiaries is that they are homeless - everything else about them is unique. A one-size-fits-all approach does not work, so we help individuals to achieve what success looks like for them. The more tools they are given to be independent, the less chance they have of returning to homelessness. Church Homeless Trust is a small charity that receives no government funding and is entirely reliant on donations.

Solution

Every week Church Homeless Trust gives around £5,500 in grants to homeless people. The grants are small, usually between £50 and £300, but to people who have nothing they mean a great deal. These small amounts of money change lives. We fund the particular training, items, activities, counselling and skills people need to rediscover their sense of purpose and feel part of society again.
