What we do
WCHP provides a variety of services many of which are accessed through contact at St Clare's Community Hub.
Today we support over 1100 people each year providing a range of services including a Community Hub and 4 Accommodation Projects. Any one night there are up to 59 people in our accommodation services. We work with them on a one to one basis to enable them to live independently once again.
We believe that everyone has the right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face in their lives. We believe in showing those who need our help that the wider community is there to support them and to offer hope for a better future. We work with some of the most vulnerable and excluded individuals in Worthing.
The work undertaken by us is crucial; people who live in our accommodation receive the specialist support they need to ensure their recovery. We empower homeless or insecurely housed individuals to achieve sustainable independent living.
