Geographical remit: 


The Cathedral Archer Project (CAP) is a place of safety and warmth where homeless and vulnerable people are welcomed and supported.  We offer crisis support such as showers, washing facilities, food and access to medical and dental care. Alongside this we run activities and offer volunteering opportunities so people can regain their confidence and self-esteem and can begin to make steps towards a stable lifestyle. At the project we believe life should be fulfilling and enjoyable, and that homeless is neither of these things. We tailor our support and treat people as individuals as we know people's situations and routes into homelessness vary immensely.  We support people from a range of backgrounds including alcohol and substance abusers, street workers, people with learning difficulties, disabilities, refugees and failed asylum seekers, all of which have experienced complex trauma throughout some point in their life.  Everyone has free access to the facilities and are supported by a team of dedicated project workers who assess all service users and signpost them to relevant services for housing and accommodation, benefits advice, and anything else they may require.

We support people to increase their self-esteem and take steps to change their lives. Our mission is to help homeless adults to achieve stable accommodation and lifestyles.


We work with people on an individual basis to encourage their self-esteem and motivation to help them take steps towards stability. Activities in the project give pepole the chance to explore new hobbies like photography, music, art, sports etc and gain a greater sense of self-awareness and achievement. Educational activities help people learn new skills and work towards volunteer roles. Volunteering gives responsibility within the project with the aims of working towards stability, employability and moving on.
