Church Army - Marylebone Project Representative: Di Giles

The Church Army’s Marylebone Project provides shelter for homeless women, trains them in catering and business and helps them get work. In 2022, over 200 women were enabled to move on and live independently. In 2023, 38,998 bed nights were provided, and 63 women were successfully resettled.

The Marylebone Project won a 2023 Homeless Link Award for Excellence in Supported Housing, and Their ‘Fresh Hope’ film is a finalist in the 2024 Smiley Charity Film Awards.

These women are often affected by substance misuse, unemployment, domestic violence and mental health issues. Whatever their story, the aim is to help them transition to increased self-esteem, employment, and independent living. This is done by providing shelter, emotional support, educational opportunities, spiritual space, and events in a welcoming and secure environment.
