Within our local communities, BCHA helps people experiencing multiple socio-economic disadvantage, including homelessness, domestic abuse, modern-day slavery, poor mental health and unemployment.

For over 50 years, in partnership with our communities, we help local people to reimagine a future on their own terms, enabling change through safe homes and holistic support, advice and guidance.  

Critical to success is the engagement from our local community members, local businesses and grant funders. We need your support to build real and positive change.

Please consider donating, partnering and fundraising with BCHA. Email fundraising@bcha.org.uk or call 01202 410 500 today to begin your journey with us and let us do something amazing together.  



Leave a gift in your Will

By remembering BCHA in your Will you will make a huge difference to someone’s life as part of your legacy. 

However big or small, your donation will make a difference. It could help provide hot meals, clothing and emergency shelter, help families and individuals to settle in their new home, or help someone to access training and support to help them get into work. 

A large donation could help us to provide more accommodation to those in need, over time giving many people a place to call home and a chance of independence.

Business Partnerships 

There are many ways that businesses and organisations can support BCHA. We place immense value on working collaboratively to support our community. We tailor all partnerships to the needs and interests of the donor, to ensure your engagement mutually adds value and benefit for your business. 

Fundraise for us

Fundraising is a great way to raise money while having some fun, or undertaking a challenge. We welcome your ideas for new and creative ways to support BCHA. 

Whatever you can do to help individually, or as a group, will collectively add up to something great and help us to make a real difference to local people. You can choose to fundraise for a specific service, or fundraise for BCHA as a whole, and we will then allocate funds where greatest need. Just get in touch via fundraising@bcha.org.uk or 01202 410 500 if you want to discuss an idea.

Get in touch with us to talk through your ideas and start your fundraising journey.

Cooper's Story

Cooper, a 10-year-old boy, organised 'Coop's Run and Splash,' a 10K sponsored jog along Southbourne seafront following by a dip in the sea.

The school boy's aim was to raise £1,000 for BCHA to fund Christmas lunches for BCHA's supported housing properties. The event took place on 11 December 2021 with Cooper dressed as Santa and his dad and friends as his 'elves'.

They were thrilled when they surpassed their target, raising over £1,800.

Cooper, who attends Park School, said: “I came up with the idea for this event to raise money for the charity BCHA, to help them fund Christmas lunches for young people they support who could become homeless.

“I love Christmas and I want to raise money to help others have the happiness and fun that we have.”
