SCAH      Solihull Churches Action on Homelessness

Welcome to SCAH and the work of Solihull Churches relating to homelessness.
Begun in 1993 when 'cardboard cities' were at their height, campaigning soon developed into practical action and over the years initiatives such as assisted housing for the young, a rent deposit scheme and furniture restoration have been part of SCAH's work. In recent years SCAH has provided 'starter packs'  and DROs (see 'SCAH support' tab above) as well as helping to alleviate general poverty.
 Here you will find information about our current work and concerns. We invite your participation - your interest, making a donation (please see CAF Donate button below) and your prayers for those with whom we work.
SCAH is a nimble charity which can respond quickly to requests from the various branches of social services. 

SCAH is run entirely by volunteers. Could you be a volunteer? As a 'shopper' helping to provide starter packs to people who are about to leave homelessness? Please see the 'scah_volunteer_shopper.role_description' file below...but we have other roles where your expertise and enthusiasm could be of use. If your answer is 'Yes, I could be a volunteer' then please email your details to

  Are you a knitter? Several knitters have contacted us to ask how they can help. We've identified that knitted, square blankets (any colour will be fine), large enough for somebody to wrap around themselves...or to put on a bed as a cover would make an ideal, additional gift to include with a 'Starter Pack' (see 'SCAH support' tab above). So, if you're wondering what to do with your knitting needles and you need a 'lockdown' project then please 'knit for SCAH'.

Venue: the Meeting Place at United Reform Church, Solihull (B91 3DG).
