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 5,000 people in over 100 projects by funding training, group activities, travel expenses, clothing and other bespoke support.
Church Housing 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. In the supported living schemes that we fund, the four key areas of support are advice services; meaningful activities, such as art, sports, gardening, and informal learning; Education, Training and Employment; and resettlement services.
