Home From Home - Become a Host

Home From Home is our hosting project where people with spare rooms offer these to guests of C4WS for short-term respite whilst our Welfare Team source suitable move-on accommodation for them. This might be someone who has secured a job and needs to save for a deposit to move into the private rented sector, an asylum seeker who needs temporary housing whilst their case is being heard or someone who has secured a new home but needs interim accommodation until their move-in date.

Hosting is a warm, inclusive and supported means of helping people in need in a tangible and affirmative way that makes a real and lasting difference. It can be fun getting to know someone new, experiencing different cultures and playing an important role in enabling someone to get back on their feet.

Our hosts report that this is a rewarding and fulfilling experience:

“We found Eric to be a very pleasant guest. He was ready to help in any way he could and was sensitive to our way of life. We were glad for him that with C4WS’s help he found accommodation of his own quite soon but we missed him when he left!”

Volunteer hosts of Home From Home are supported throughout the process by the C4WS Welfare Team and if you require any further information about what hosting might involve please don’t hesitate to contact us on admin@c4wshomelessproject.org
