Big Lottery and European Social Fund

CHS and its partners were granted funding for our New Horizons project. New Horizons helps people make sense of their money, get on-line and get closer to the job market. The project is aimed at those who are struggling to make ends meet or are facing financial changes. Participants will each receive an average of 20 hours of one to one support from a coach, who will help them to set realistic goals and take the necessary steps to meet them. Whilst the primary focus for most participants will be around managing their money, participants will also have help to get on-line, and to start to look for work, or get into training or education. Those who need it will have access to debt management services.

 

CHS Achievement Awards

To coincide with our 90th birthday we are acknowledging the amazing successes many of our residents & service users achieve despite some very challenging circumstances and so we have created the CHS Achievement Award.

We are immensely proud of the people we support and feel it is important that these achievements are celebrated. These may include achievements in education or training, working or volunteering within the local community, gaining a skill or knowledge, or overcoming a personal challenge. Whatever the achievement, it should demonstrate commitment, hard work, resilience and dedication. The achievements are marked by the presentation of a certificate and a small financial award by Nigel Howlett, our Chief Executive.

Social Value

CHS’s diverse range of activities enables us to make a considerable contribution in terms of social return. CHS has a strong record of investment in the local community, and we use the HACT Social Value calculator to assess the social value generated by some of the activities and our Community Investment and Community Support Services teams generated a social impact of over £2.8m in 2020-21. Please see our Value For Money Statement 2020-21 for further details.
