Registered Charity No: 802801 (England & Wales).
Church Homeless Trust supports people who have been homeless, by funding the help they need to build their confidence, develop their skills, and establish a home.
Our roots go back to 1882, when Revd Wilson Carlile began working with homeless people in central London. To this day, we uphold the Christian values of supporting those in need, and help more than 3,500 people every year.
We do this by providing funds for emergency cold weather provisions and beds during the winter. Then throughout the year we pay for basic essentials, such as food parcels and toiletries, for people coming into hostels with nothing.
Some are young adults at risk, families, or ex-Services personnel; while others have had mental health issues or problems with drug and alcohol misuse, and require specialist support. We help each person to become more confident and healthy through training, life skills sessions, and personal support that builds their self-esteem.
We pay for vocational training, clothes, and travel so that they can start volunteering or working. We also pay for activities that help them to socialise and build relationships. Once they have received the help and support they need, we help them to move on to independent living with grants for basic furnishings and household essentials for their new homes.
