Our Approach

People who have experienced homelessness need more than just a roof.

They need help to overcome the difficulties they face, and opportunities to develop their confidence and skills.

To maintain this, they need to find a safe place within a community, with positive and supportive relationships. Last year we helped more than 3,500 people in over 100 projects by funding training, group activities, travel expenses, clothing and other bespoke support.

Church Homeless Trust helps people without a home to rebuild their lives. It takes a huge amount of support to make the journey from sleeping rough to establishing a home.

We fund peer-led support and outreach to help rough sleepers off the streets, and pay for essentials when people arrive in hostels for the first time.

Being homeless robs people of their self-esteem and hopes for the future. Our support helps them to gain confidence and build positive relationships.

To break the cycle of homelessness people need to feel that they have something worthwhile to offer. Our funding helps them to develop skills.

It can take a long time for someone to be able to move into a home of their own. When they are ready, our funding helps them turn a bare flat into a home.
