Voluntary Action Arun & Chichester


VAAC Research (Homelessness)

By working with our colleagues in the Voluntary and Community sector, we have a series of independent case studies in Homelessness Development. They show examples of community organisations stories of adapting during the coronavirus and what the future holds for them.

The Four Streets Project - how they adapted during the COVID-19 crisis

The Four Streets Project

The project exists to provide any available ‘on the spot’ and ‘common sense’ support to any person who is sleeping on the streets of Chichester or those known to be vulnerably housed as above.

We recognise that the route to living on the streets and having no home can be multi-faced. We do make judgements regarding each person’s individual story.
Our collective and only purpose is to provide support i.e. food, drink, sleeping bags, clothing, referral to agencies to people sleeping out on the streets of Chichester, and those known to us to be vulnerably house; the situation frequently referred to as ‘sofa surfing.’
