BCHA has been helping homeless and vulnerable people for over 45 years. We help over 10,000 people each year off the streets, out of abuse, over skills barriers and onto independence and work. Whether it is homelessness, domestic violence, educational disadvantage or just the need for help and advice, we offer people the support they need.
10,000 people supported each year – written down this is just a number but each one of them is an individual person, with feelings and emotions, who are often in very difficult and frightening situations through no fault of their own.
Sarah and her daughter Sophie had to leave home because of domestic violence; John lost everything due to the effect of his deteriorating mental health; Poppy was trafficked into the area and used as a slave but has now been rescued; James lost his family last year and has nowhere to call home apart from the streets.
BCHA provide more than just a bed to these people. We provide security, safety, comfort and peace for people who have no other place to sleep.
We are looking to work with people and organisations to help us raise the money needed so as we can continue to help more people like Sarah, John, Poppy and James, to live independently within our community.
