Welcome to our Bchangemakers campaign.

2018 marked 50 years since a group of Bournemouth churches came together to address a housing crisis, forming what we now know as BCHA.

BCHA provides practical solutions to homelessness, unemployment, social exclusion and the need for more housing across the South of England.

To celebrate this amazing anniversary, we are bringing together our local community, companies, partners and supporters in a new campaign – Bchangemakers. We’ll be reflecting back on lives we have helped transform over the past 50 years, and forward to new exciting projects and to enable us to continue to offer the wide range of services we provide.

What we’ll do


We will tell 50 stories about “changemakers” across our communities, celebrate the fantastic work of our people and partners, and equip more people to find a way to make a difference – through donations, sponsorship and volunteering.

The campaign will demonstrate how investing in housing solutions can create opportunities for people across society. We will be focusing on five areas that are key to the work we do:


Domestic Abuse

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Social Exclusion


How you can get involved


Become a volunteer – this could be spending a few hours helping in one of our services, working on a specific project such as gardening or fundraising.

We would like to extend our mentoring program so if you have a particular skill or expertise in an area that could benefit our customers or staff we would be very interested in hearing from you.

To discuss opportunities to volunteer please contact BCHA on either customerservices@bcha.org.uk or call 01202 410500

Tell your story

If you have a story about the positive change you have made in your own life, or a story about a colleague, friend or family member, then share it with the Bchangemakers community on our social media pages, using the hashtag #Bchangemakers.

With thanks to our partners
