Cambridge Churches Homeless Project


Winter 2017/18

We are now well into the project for this winter, with grateful thanks to the generous support of so many. We will continue until the morning of Tuesday 3rd April 2018.

The project is hosted in a different church or community centre each night. Initial referrals are via Jimmy's Assessment Centre in partnership with other agencies. Each night up to 15 homeless men will be offered a hot meal, friendship, pastoral care and a safe warm place to sleep. Guests leave in the morning to have breakfast and showers at Wintercomfort

We work in partnership with local homeless agencies, so that our guests get the best chance to find the accommodation and support they need. 

We acknowledge the generous support of many people who donate their time and money and hold us and our guests in their prayers.

Donations are used for pay for equipment and materials for sleeping and cleaning, for printing and paperwork, for third party services such as cleaning and storage, and to employ a Coordinator to help manage the project day to day. We offer our guests basic welfare items and where funds permit we are able to do more to help our guests move on, working with local agencies.


We have now completed our main volunteer training evenings for this winter.

But if you would like to help in a practical way, or have IT/web skills we'd still be pleased to hear from you!


We have also completed our recruitment for this winter, but again if you are interested do stay in touch.

Statement of Ethics

The core values, ethos and behaviours of the Cambridge Churches Homeless Project are rooted in and sustained by the Christian faith which is characterised by a commitment to social justice, bringing hope, building community, celebrating diversity, and showing compassion and reconciliation. We do not discriminate on the grounds of race, language, colour or sexual orientation. We welcome guests, volunteers and partners from all faiths and none asking that they reflect these core values.
