Change a life
With your support we can provide people who've been homeless so much more than a place to live. We can provide a safe place to call home, a broad range of health and wellbeing support, plus educational opportunities and employability training. Your donation can truly transform a life.

“My marriage broke down, I couldn’t afford the bills and my mental health deteriorated. I was in a managerial position at work but my anxiety stopped me being able to travel. Eventually, I ended up becoming homeless and being referred to Caritas Anchor House."
"I think it is easy to assume that people who are homeless come from a drug or alcohol abuse background and that can be true, however, everyone has their own story and people can find themselves becoming homeless having come from any walk of life.”

"It’s all positive at Caritas Anchor House. It’s a very caring environment, and it’s fantastic having that base where you can take time to rebuild things. Living here, the lockdown hasn’t affected me, but I’m very active in my church. I've also been volunteering with the council as a COVID health champion, so I've kept very busy."
"I get support from my key worker over the phone and I'm hoping to start accessing psychological support soon. As for moving on, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it!"
