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.

We have had lots of food coming in from school and church Harvest festivals - thank you all for your generosity.
Here's a reminder of why people need donated food:
Between jobs
Fluctuating agency work
Zero-hours contracts
Delay in benefits
Changes to benefits
High cost of utilities
Fuel poverty
Unexpected financial crisis
Some of the above issues are unexpected crises and some are situations that make any budgeting very difficult (eg agency/zero-hours).
