Winter Project

CHESS is a small charity which has given help and support to hundreds of homeless people since it was launched 21 years ago. We try and stretch our resources as far as they will go and are constantly balancing the risks posed by increasing drug and alcohol use, against the need to keep as many people as we are able to help, in a safe and secure environment.

In addition to our 30 beds which are available throughout the year, and an outreach service which contacts homeless people and helps them before they have been on the streets too long, we offer 10 bed spaces on our Winter Project, as respite from the ravages of cold weather.

Sadly, this resource is not always full – despite the cold weather, so please contact us on 01245 252410 or 01245 281104 to check availability of bed spaces on this project. This service is available this year until the end of March.

CHESS would like to do more but is constrained by the finances available to do so.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of donations we have received from members of the public and would like to thank you. However, we are unable to accept any further supplies at this moment in time.
