Our Work

Watch our video to see how CHESS helps the homeless
Humans of Chelmsford:
Fighting back after seven years of homelessness

Please listen to KJ’s story and how Chess Homeless has helped him. We can only continue to do this with the support of the community. If you are in a position to donate even a small amount it means a great deal to us, as we are a small charity. All funds will go towards supporting the many homeless single adults we help. Or why not support us through your work.

Case Studies

We are looking for volunteers to assist our Outreach team in meeting the urgent needs of rough sleepers in our community.

The role includes following up referrals directly from the street and assessing client suitability for the possibility of a 72 hour stay at The Hub. Areas covered will be Chelmsford, Braintree, Maldon and Epping.

Applicants should be fit and healthy, due to some walking involved, and have a desire to help homeless individuals whilst adhering to policies and procedures. Full training provided and an enhanced DBS check will be completed.
