Funding to continue providing housing advice in Herne Bay and Whitstable

We’re delighted to announce that the National Lottery Community Fund has awarded us just over £7,000 to fund our outreach programme in Herne Bay and Whitstable for 1 year from 1 April 2019.

CHAC provides housing advice in Herne Bay on a Wednesday morning, and in Whitstable on a Wednesday afternoon. This saves residents of Herne Bay and Whitstable expensive bus fares, as well as the time out needed to travel to Canterbury. In 2017/18 we advised and helped 175 households in Herne Bay and 125 households in Whitstable.

The award of £7,287 from the National Lottery Community Fund’s Awards for All programme will keep our Outreach Project running for another year helping prevent homelessness and reduce poverty in Herne Bay and Whitstable. As part of the project, CHAC will also be launching a pilot service user involvement project, whereby CHAC can develop its services in Herne Bay and Whitstable to best meet the needs of our clients.

The Herne Bay outreach takes place 10am-12pm at the Citizens Advice office in Herne Bay, and 1pm-3pm in the Whitstable Umbrella Centre, every Wednesday. No booking necessary. Click here for more information on contacting CHAC.
