THE WORK OF HCAT

Honiton Community Action Trust (HCAT) was established in 2012 to co-ordinate, support and manage several social action projects that have been initiated by The Community Church Honiton. The work of the Community Action Trust continues to grow rapidly. If you need help from our Community Action Team or would like to arrange an informal initial chat then please leave a message at The King’s Centre on 01404 43800, or email office@tcch.org.uk. All inquiries will be treated as confidential.

Craft Group

This group meets every Wednesday 10:00—12:00 at The King’s Centre during term time. The group was started to encourage creativity in women and to reduce social isolation using a range of activities from pottery to paper making. All abilities are welcome. For more information please contact the Church office.

Furniture Bank

The Furniture Bank, since 2013, has existed to provide people who have insufficient finances of their own to furnish and equip their home, often those who have been made homeless and are being housed by EDDC.  In the first year we helped 24 people and families with 129 items, increasing in 2015 to 37 people/ families receiving 339 items.  The Furniture Bank has a very small team of guys who collect and deliver to Honiton and surrounding area and is grateful for donations of furniture, white goods and household items in good condition.
