Providing supported accommodation for homeless people in Hastings, St Leonards and Bexhill
Transom Trust is an expression of compassion, faith in action and unity by the churches of Hastings, St Leonards and Bexhill, providing supported accommodation for homeless people.
Our aim is to make our own unique contribution to the tremendous work already being carried out by many other local voluntary and statutory agencies to tackle the ongoing, significant challenge of homelessness, by offering supported housing with a Christian ethos.
Residents (of any faith or none) are befriended and mentored by a team of volunteers from local churches.
In addition to practical and pastoral support, we recognise the importance of meaningful, rewarding activity for people recovering from the problems associated with homelessness; to this end, Transom Trust has developed partnerships with local social enterprises to offer residents opportunities for voluntary work, aiding their recovery and building essential employment skills.
Transom Trust operates in partnership with national charity, Green Pastures, whose aim is to “release the church to end homelessness”.
We have been very pleased to launch our first property for 2 men in July 2017.
“Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless.
Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.
Then your salvation will come like the dawn, and your wounds will quickly heal.
Your godliness will lead you forward, and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind.
Then when you call, the Lord will answer. ‘Yes, I am here,’ he will quickly reply.”
