2018 marks 50 years since a group of Bournemouth churches came together to address a housing crisis. BCHA provides practical solutions to homelessness, unemployment, social exclusion and the need for more affordable housing across the South of England. To celebrate this amazing anniversary, our new campaign - Bchangemakers – looks back on lives we have helped transform over the past 50 years and forward to new exciting projects. We will tell 50 stories about “changemakers” across our communities, celebrate the fantastic work of our people and partners, and equip more people to find a way to make a difference. The campaign will demonstrate how investing in housing solutions can create opportunities for people across society.
I am proud to be a part of BCHA and have seen how much difference we can make. Raising money to help the most vulnerable in our communities and also achieving a personal challenge of my own seems an amazing way to celebrate our big birthdays!
