About Us

CHAT (Churches Housing Action Team) was founded by Christians who were concerned by the large number of people experiencing housing difficulty in Mid Devon.

We believe that everyone is entitled to decent, secure and affordable housing – somewhere to call home.

No sea in Mid Devon, but these stories give further insight into homelessness.

Thank you to those of you who have supported CHAT through easyfundraising.
Last week we found out that nearly £80 has now been raised.
It's never too late to sign up

As a charity offering free legal advice, CHAT can join in with SWLST fund-raising events to raise money directly for our own work.
Please click on the link to find out more.
Although the week suggested is 12 - 16 February, we'd be very happy if you'd like to do this any time in February or March.
Please get in touch if you're interested. [Any funds you raise need to be paid to CHAT, not SWLST]. Thanks.


Do you have a spare rucksack or holdall?

A big Thank You to all the amazing CHAT speakers who were out and about on Homeless Sunday. Really great to have such talented staff and volunteers (including two of our trustees).
