Hope into Action

CTiE made the decision in Feb 2018 to explore a possible partnership with the national charity Hope into Action to provide housing and support for homeless and vulnerably housed people in Epsom, and this work continues to progress in a positive way.

Currently £300,000 has been pledged by local investors towards the purchase of a house, and local churches have been generous in offering contributions towards the initial cost of a franchise arrangement with Hope into Action. Work is being done to register ‘Hope into Action: Epsom’ as a charity, to develop contacts with local referrers (such as HMP Downview), to visit other similar housing projects, and to learn more about the franchise arrangements with HiA and how the partnerships with local churches in the running of this/these projects will operate. The (prospective) trustees will hope to attend an assessment day with Hope into Action in April, and further training in June if all continues to proceed.   

There is more work to be done, but it is exciting to think that the Churches Together in Epsom might be able to play a role in supporting individuals in very difficult circumstances towards a brighter and more stable future.
