Church Housing Trust is dedicated to the rehabilitation and resettlement of homeless people of all ages and backgrounds. Our ultimate goal is to help homeless people regain their independence and resettle in the community.

Church Housing Trust raises charitable funds to support Riverside ECHG (formerly English Churches Housing Group)’s work with homeless and vulnerable people, including: general hostels, projects for people with drug/alcohol problems, mother and baby units, accommodation for homeless families, women’s refuges, temporary housing for ex-Service personnel, accommodation for people with learning disabilities, young people’s foyers and day centres. The charitable funds raised by Church Housing Trust directly benefit the residents of Riverside ECHG’s hostels and related projects.

Although there is funding for core services, the extra resources we raise make a huge difference to the quality and scope of care the hostels can provide.

We currently help more than 80 supported housing schemes across England to provide a caring, compassionate environment, in which the most lonely or troubled homeless person can receive help and encouragement, whatever their needs. Your support can turn a hostel into a place of hope and ambition, and a bare room into a home.

Donations go towards services that do more than feed and shelter people; they allow them a second chance at life:


volunteer costs

residents’ welfare

education and training

residents’ resettlement costs

IT and other training equipment

therapeutic activities and outings

staff posts for which funding is not available

furnishing hostel accommodation and refurbishing older premises

Through your donations, Church Housing Trust supports some of England’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people, helping them reintegrate into mainstream society and get their lives back on track.

Over the past year, more than 4,300 homeless people were helped for the first time by the projects we support.
