SummaryCCP’s team of experienced family support staff provide life-changing support to families in crisis. Volunteers are an integral part of the service
We as a Charity CCP was originally founded in 1989 by a local businessman in response to the growing number of homeless young people in Cheltenham. Recognising that people as young as 16 were sleeping rough around the town after having been thrown out of their family home, he purchased a building and opened a 10-bed hostel.
We have grown a lot since then and now aim to transform the lives of children, young people, families, and vulnerable adults by preventing homelessness, strengthening families and promoting independence. With a head office in Cheltenham, we currently employ 220 staff, backed up by a team of 160 volunteers, currently delivering services and projects in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, South Gloucestershire, Bristol, Wiltshire, and Dorset.

The service offers emotional and practical support to families who may be facing challenges, which can include deprivation, family breakdown, lone parents, parents who find it difficult to cope with the stresses of family life, or those who are socially isolated.
Our aim is to empower families, by giving them the tools to overcome these challenges and for children to flourish in their environment.
