Thank you for visiting the website of Chorley Help the Homeless Ltd,
the local charity for homelessness in Chorley, Lancashire.
We are here to help
At Help the Homeless we strive to combat homelessness and the causes of homelessness in the Borough of Chorley and its surrounding areas. With a team of professionals and specialist volunteers we provide support to families and individuals who have nowhere safe to live, or who are about to lose their home.
Whether our clients are families in unexpected difficulties, sofa surfers or street homeless, we apply our range of advice, support, early intervention and prevention services to their circumstances, then work tirelessly to find the root cause of the crisis, and do our best to help them find their route back to independent living.
We are seeking trustees to join our governing body (voluntary roles).
At Chorley Help the Homeless our mission is to the prevent homelessness, and to support those who are homeless or threatened with homelessness, through the provision of an influential, capable, and compassionate charitable service. We have been based in Chorley since 1995, offering support, advice and hospitality to anyone who comes through the door of our drop-in centre asking for help. We provide this service through a team of dedicated volunteers and an administrator, and we receive generous support and practical gifts from the people of Chorley. The charity is managed by a board of trustees, our governing body.
As the charity looks to the future we are actively seeking a number of new volunteers to join the Board of Trustees at Chorley Help the Homeless, to help us manage the drop-in centre and support our staff and volunteers. We need people who are keen to make a difference in their town, who want to help us in our mission, and who are willing to offer their time and range of skills to guide the charity.
These are voluntary roles, and your commitment to us will include attending board meetings (usually 10 to 12 a year), and pursuing supportive activities, such as fund raising, community networking, and representing the charity at public, civic or corporate events.
We would welcome applications for trustee roles from people over the age of 18, with a public spirited attitude and a dedication to serving their community.
If you are interested in becoming a trustee please drop in to our office at 45 Clifford Street to ask for an application form, or for more information please send an email enquiry to Dorothy Griffiths at firstname.lastname@example.org
