Cheltenham Housing Aid Centre

We are a small independent charity in Cheltenham providing housing advice to people in need.

It's small charity week! We asked staff member Charmaine Davies what it’s like to work for a small charity. ‘I absolutely love working at CHAC and feel very proud to work for such a wonderful charity. We are very small (but mighty) and that brings its challenges but it also makes us unique and resilient. I work with the most amazing and knowledgeable people and I know we make a big difference to the people we help. Like lots of small charities funding is always a challenge. If you feel you would like to make a donation please visit our website on www.chac.org.uk. Thank you:)’ ... See MoreSee Less
