CHALK supports the homeless and people living in poverty in the Oswestry and surrounding areas. CHALK provides vital services to the homeless, people living in poverty and as a general place for the community to turn when they need help. The original ethos remains, kindness and no judgment and will forever be the back bone of CHALK.
Our core work is:
- Providing free furniture and everything to make a home to those experiencing furniture poverty and crisis.
- Supporting the homeless, sofa surfers and people living in temporary accommodation in Oswestry and surrounding areas.We have been working with the homeless community of Oswestry and surrounding areas for nearly two years. The project started informally, taking an hour out of the day to take water and sandwiches out to everyone in the middle of summer, to warm blankets and hot drinks in the winter. People started to come to us asking for help. Sometimes for an extra blanket, sometimes in sobs of desperation.
- Oswestry Christmas Day Open House is a community project which provides a full Christmas dinner, entertainment, gifts and transport to members of the local community on Christmas Day. Our aim is to tackle social isolation and hardship in the festive season, as well as reconnect our community in the true spirit of Christmas.
