2016 has been a year of both change and challenge affecting CATH staff and those we continue to support and yet we have been overwhelmed by the generosity and good will shown by the people and agencies of Perth and Kinross.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks on behalf of CATH staff and our management committee for your continued support of the work we do and wish you all a happy and peaceful 2017.

Churches Action for the Homeless (CATH) is a local charity which supports, encourages and promotes the development and delivery of projects to relieve homelessness and poor housing, improve the conditions of life and generally aid the development of persons who are homeless in the Perth & Kinross Council area.
The organisation recognises the associated problems that homelessness presents and works to alleviate those and help maintain and improve the quality of life of our beneficiaries. We help significant numbers of people each year to overcome homelessness issues through our projects which include a drop-in Day Centre, CATH House, Floating Support, Outreach Team , Literacy Project. CATH Befrienders, and our Charity Shop.

Why not get involved?
Homelessness is a growing issue, especially in this troubled economic climate. Every bit of support that you can offer is gratefully received.
Perhaps you could spare a few hours each week to volunteer in one of our projects? You may have some items that we could make use of in our projects or charity shop? Maybe you’d like to become a member and have your say in the future of CATH? Or, donate just £1 per month via our CATH 500 programme?
Everything helps. Just get in touch, and we’ll take it from there.
