Welcome to the BCHA LATCH Project Website

The LATCH Project houses homeless 18 to 25 year olds in the London Borough of Bromley; housing them in the spare rooms of ordinary householders.  Bromley Churches’ Housing Action is a registered charity set up in 1988 to work for the relief of poverty among homeless people in the London Borough of Bromley and to provide, in particular, grants and short-term accommodation. Currently, the resources of BCHA are devoted to the LATCH Project. LATCH is an acronym for “Living Amicably Together in Caring Homes”.

The LATCH Project is unique within the London Borough of Bromley.  We are one of a growing number of charities working at a local level, across the UK, to meet the needs of young homeless people.  LATCH provides homeless young people with a support base, from which they can make a fresh start and become valuable members of the community.

Urgent Appeal for New Hosts

The LATCH Project is desperately looking for new hosts. Unfortunately we currently have a number of clients on a waiting list and with winter approaching the numbers of those seeking homes always increases.

People from all walks of life can become hosts.  The key attributes are that you have a spare bedroom and are willing to offer this room to accommodate a young homeless person, between the ages of 18 and 25.  Most importantly, you should be interested in making a difference in a young person’s life.

If you or you know someone who is interested in becoming a host, please contact a member of the LATCH office team on 0208 460 0042 or email info@latch-project.co.uk.  There is no obligation to proceed and upon learning more, you are free to decide that now is not the right moment for you to become a host.
