Who we are
BCHA has been helping homeless and vulnerable people for over 50 years.
We help over 10,000 people each year off the streets, out of abuse, over skills barriers and on to 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.
BCHA manage over 1300 units of accommodation and provide services (accommodation or community-based) across the south west local authority areas.
We are looking to work with people and organisations to help us raise the money needed so we can continue to help more people to live independently within our community
