What is Catching Lives?

Who We Are

What We Want

Our vision is of a society where all are included and everyone, no matter how disadvantaged, can make a contribution. We’re working towards ending the harm caused to individuals and communities by homelessness, rough sleeping and insecure housing.

How We Work

Our Day Centre in Canterbury offers clients help with accessing accommodation, mental health support and looking for work, as well as daily meals, access to showers and laundry facilities.

Donating to Catching Lives

Our income comes primarily from public donations, as well as some grant funding from trusts and foundations. We receive very little statutory funding. The support of the local community is extremely important for us to continue our vital work within the Canterbury and East Kent area.
