Our residential projects house 58 people and on average we have 20-30 people every day at the day centre. The provision of this service as well as the up keep of our properties, costs in excess of £2.4 million annually. If you can help in any way, any financial contributions would be very gratefully received.


Today Worthing Churches Homeless Projects helps over 1,000 people each year providing a range of services including a Day Centre and 4 Accommodation Projects. Any one night there are up to 58 people in our accommodation services. We work with them on a one to one basis to enable them to live independently once again.


We organise and run a variety of fundraising events throughout the year ranging from musical dinner evenings to skydiving. Our aim is to cater for all tastes so hopefully you will find something that appeals to you.

My understanding and opinions on homelessness have changed so much in the last six months, and I believe my experience has strengthened me as a person, and a lot of that I owe to the caring and dedicated staff at WCHP.
