CHA is a charity and we have been offering housing advice and support in Exeter and neighbouring areas since 1990. We believe that everyone has the right to suitable, sustainable, secure and affordable housing. We work with people who are in need of housing to enable them to find their own solutions, providing information and practical support.
We began life as a voluntary housing advice service, and have expanded the work that we do over the years to provide practical ways to help people to resolve their homelessness. On average, we work with around 1,000 people and households each year. Community Housing Aid is also a MINDFUL EMPLOYER® which is a Registered Trade Mark of Devon Partnership NHS Trust.
We currently support homeless and vulnerably housed people through the following core projects:
Nightstop Devon – a same day emergency accommodation scheme for young people aged 16 – 25 in the homes of trained and approved volunteer hosts.
Bay6 – a project that seeks to end homeless hospital discharge in Devon by providing housing advice, support & assistance to patients pre & post release.
NEW What Works 4 You – Support to young people & offenders to improve their financial circumstances, confidence & resilience.
