Catching Lives is an independent charity supporting people who are sleeping rough, homeless or insecurely housed in Canterbury and East Kent; people who have, for many reasons, fallen through the gaps in society and feel they have nowhere else to turn.
Our vision is of a society where all are included and all, no matter how disadvantaged, can make a contribution. Catching Lives works towards ending the harm caused to individuals, families and the community, by homelessness, rough sleeping and insecure housing. We do this by offering immediate respite at our project in Canterbury: the Canterbury Open Centre. In addition to this, we work with people to address any issues that they may have, to access to suitable accommodation and find the motivation to take steps towards personal recovery and independent living.
Our day centre (Station Road East, Canterbury) is open for drop-in every day 9am-2pm (1.30pm Weds) for people who are homeless or insecurely housed.
