Church Housing Trust raises charitable funds to support Riverside ECHG’s work with homeless, vulnerable people, and those in housing need.

We are dedicated to the rehabilitation and resettlement of homeless people of all ages and backgrounds. By tackling the longer-term issues that perpetuate homelessness, rather than providing quick fixes, Church Housing Trust offers new beginnings for homeless people of all ages.

Thank you 2014
2014 has been an eventful year, and without your support we couldn't have helped so many marginalised and homeless people get a second chance. Music is 'Supernova' by Craig Summers.

We are so thankful for the huge effort our supporters go to in order to help homeless people around the harsh winter months, and their generosity during the holiday season.

However, homelessness is not a problem that disappears overnight. Church Housing Trust raises funds throughout the year in order to meet the needs of the projects we support. So we, and those we help, appreciate your support all year round, too.


Are you our newest trustee?

Church Housing Trust is looking for new trustees to join its established board and help to continue more than 25 years of work supporting homeless and marginalised people.

Church Housing Trust raises funds to provide better facilities, opportunities and futures for homeless people, while promoting understanding of the difficulties faced by those in housing need. We work with national housing association Riverside ECHG (formerly English Churches Housing Group) to provide this support. The need has never been greater. Our team raises funds nationally for the care, training and resettlement of homeless people to provide services not funded by statutory sources.

If you have one of the following skills, and want to make a difference to the lives of homeless people, please contact us: Fundraising, social media, general marketing, PR, charity communications. An awareness of the current political and social climate, especially regarding housing, would likewise be helpful. If you have further experience in another field that you feel would be of benefit to the charity, such as finance or law, we would also love to hear from you. The position is not remunerated, though reasonable expenses are paid. Trustees come from across England.

If you are interested please email your CV, with a short cover letter outlining your interest in this role, to
