With your support, we can keep rebuilding lives.
Your donations make a difference.
We need your help more than ever to keep supporting those who need us most.
Our name has recently changed from Church Homeless Trust to Church Homeless Charity, in order to reflect the fact that we are entirely reliant on our donors to support the 3,000+ homeless individuals we help each year.

Grant of the Week:
Ella had a history of drug use that eventually left her homeless. She was moved into accommodation during the pandemic, and now she’s been clean for some time, despite suffering from severe financial difficulties and being victimised by loan sharks. CHC paid for food for Ella, as well as gas and electricity, to help support her through this trying time.
Your generosity in action
In October 2023 we awarded 86 personal grants to help homeless people rebuild their lives, and funded activities and events across the country.
Jill had a history of serious mental health issues, for which she had previously been sectioned, and eventually homeless. Now she’s living in supported accommodation and receiving support, but she wanted to occupy her time with something useful. She’s now studying tailoring at a nearby college, with the hope of developing her skill. CHC supported her by purchasing books and a laptop, to support her education.
Jason was just 14 when he was put into care. Now he’s starting out his adult life and has got an apprenticeship, but he needed help with the costs of setting up his first home. With no family to turn to, Church Homeless Charity provided Jason with a grant to get him started. CHC funded a desk where he can get his work done, and gas/electricity for when he first moved into his new flat.
John became homeless after being admitted to hospital for heart failure. He spent a long time in hospital, and was discharged onto the streets. After a period rough sleeping, he’s now sleeping indoors. CHC purchased new clothes and a phone for John, who is very grateful.
Mila’s husband and family were deeply abusive to her. When she began to suffer from a deep depression, she was told that she was no longer ‘any use’ to him. When he sold their home and moved abroad, she was left homeless. Now, after support from services, she’s finally in a position to begin rebuilding her life. CHC supported her by purchasing household goods for her new home.
Rebuilding broken lives
We are a small charity that helps homeless people in England rebuild their lives away from the streets.
Our grants provide individual homeless people the financial support they need to make the next step in their lives.
And we fund projects that help build the skills and self-confidence that enable people to progress from the streets to a secure home of their own.
