Here are a few ways you can help us financially

Sign up to give a regular sum to CHAT, monthly, quarterly or annually, anything from £10 upwards, to become a Giver of Hope  and support our vital work. 

Donating regularly through a bank is an easy and cost-effective way of supporting us.  Most importantly it provides us with regular income, ensuring we can plan ahead and use the money where it can best support the work.

You can return this form to CHAT, Coggan’s Well House, Phoenix Lane, Tiverton EX16 6LU or contact the office for more information.

To give a one off donation please call in to the office or make a BACS transfer to Churches Housing Action Team.

After Giver of Hope this is the next best way to ensure we receive all of your donation

If you are a taxpayer please consider filling out our online Gift Aid form which helps us get 20% back from the government.

Note: When donating by card or Paypal, they take around 1.4% +  £0.20 for every donation.


Our foodbank is much in demand at the moment. If you are able to help please drop off at our office (open hours 9:30 – 4:30 Mon – Fri) or use the donation boxes in Tiverton at Reapers, Lidl, Morrisons and Tesco.  There are also many local collection points (please let us know if you know of one not listed here)

We are working with people in the midst of the Coronavirus crisis but we know many more people will need our Support and Advice in Housing and Debt & Money in the coming months. When people ring for help with food we also assess how we can best help them on an ongoing basis.
