Canterbury Housing Advice Centre (CHAC) is a registered charity with the objective of relieving poverty and homelessness in the Canterbury District. Our work primarily focuses on preventing homelessness. We provide a free, confidential, independent and impartial advice service on a wide range of housing issues and problems including homelessness, accessing accommodation in the public, private and voluntary sectors, repossession, landlord/tenant issues, and housing benefit. We also assist those who become (or are about to become) homeless to access alternative accommodation.

We have been awarded London Legal Support Trust Centre of Excellence status in recognition of the quality of our service. We have been providing this high-quality service to the residents of Canterbury, Whitstable and Herne Bay continuously since 1991.
