What We Do
Safety Net and Springboard
We provide a safety net of supported homes and community based services for people in Dudley who may be experiencing crisis or challenging transitions, homelessness, domestic abuse or may need support with independent living. Our aim is to provide services that act as a springboard to a better future.
CHADD – the Churches Housing Association of Dudley and District is a local, voluntary sector organisation fulfilling a charitable and social mission, exclusively in the metropolitan borough of Dudley. Registered as a provider of social housing (RP) and as an Industrial and Provident Society, it has the status of an exempt charity and as such is not required to be registered with the Charity Commission.
We provide 290 supported homes across our key service areas. Our specialist services include:
- - Housing and support for young people and young families.
- - Refuge provision and outreach support for victims of domestic abuse.
- - Sheltered housing for older people.
- - Supported homes for people living with mental health conditions and learning disabilities.
In the last 3 years, we have added to the number of our homes through partnerships and asset transfers enabling us to grow our supported homes for older people and specialist supported housing for young parents.
We have seen significant growth in the provision of outreach services and specialist interventions for victims of domestic abuse.
