Winter Project – Chess Homeless

Winter Project

As we have increased our bedspaces considerably over the past 18 months from 32 to 66 we no longer have the capacity to run the Winter Project.  

We are now able to offer longer term solutions to rough sleepers that we make contact with, within accommodation that has been set aside to assist these individuals.  From here they are able to work with our Support Team with a view to moving into more permanent accommodation within one of our other 12 houses.

CHESS is a small charity which has offered help and support to hundreds of homeless people since it was launched 22 years ago. We try and stretch our resources as far as they will go and are constantly balancing the risks posed by increased drug and alcohol use, against the need to keep as many people as we are able to help, in a safe and secure environment.

Apply For A Bed

If you are currently homeless you can apply for a bed here.

We often have a waiting list but by completing the referral form we can start the process of getting you the help you need.

Worried About A Rough Sleeper

If you are concerned about someone you have seen sleeping rough, you can submit a referral through Streetlink

This will action a visit from our Outreach Team to assess their needs and take necessary next steps to help.
