Trinity Homeless Projects - Christmas Chalet



Details of the Charity:

Trinity’ mission is to end homelessness. We are the largest provider of supported accommodation, in London Borough of Hillingdon, to those who are suffering the effects of homelessness. We have 40 houses supporting over 300 people every year to address the reasons why they became homeless, so that they never become homeless again. We have a sister charity in Slough, SHOC, which offers Day Centre Services to people sleeping rough.

We have 2 Social Enterprises, Trinity Furniture Store which generate income to open more houses. We have a very active Fundraising team who have a  transactional approach offering the community to help us end homelessness.
