We Are Stonepillow | Empowering Homeless and Vulnerable People to Make Positive Changes in Their Lives...
Founded in 1989 and now in our 27th year of operation, we are a charity that provides a lifeline for homeless people with hubs, hostels and supported accommodation in Chichester, Bognor Regis and Littlehampton.
Did You Know?
- In the past year, 208 people have accessed our services and 108 people have moved into a home of their own.
- In 2015, we opened Stonepillow Lodge, a new facility of 5 en-suite bedrooms, in conjunction with St Richard’s Hospital to house homeless people discharged from hospital.
- We employ over 40 people to support our clients but also rely heavily on our loyal team of volunteers who we could not manage without.
- We have supported hundreds of clients to regain their independence, many of whom would still be sleeping rough on the streets without our help.
Who We Are
Stonepillow is the trading name of the Christian Care Association (CCA) formed in 1989 following a sermon given by the Reverend Hilary Parsons concerning the death of an ex-Graylingwell patient in a public toilet in Chichester, West Sussex.
The Association was registered as a charity in 1991 (St Richard of Chichester Christian Care Association, charity no 1000830) and also as a Company Limited by Guarantee (company no 2504171).
