Welcome to CHOP – the Cambridge Homeless Outreach Programme! We are a group of students at Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin universities with one fundamental goal – to break down the divide between the student and homeless communities in Cambridge and help students to engage more actively with the homeless population.
We recognise that many students want to help the homeless community in Cambridge but are not always sure how. Through a combination of raising awareness, fundraising for local charities, organising outreach events and advertising volunteering opportunities, we hope to help harness this goodwill in order to help students make a genuine impact.
On this site, you can find out more about who we are, what we do and why we do it, and how you can get involved with our work. You can also follow our Facebook page or subscribe to our mailing list (we promise to only email you once every week or two, and always with relevant information about upcoming events, opportunities and news about homelessness!)
