Barons Court Project

Read Time:1 Minute, 58 Second

The Chelsea Supporters Trust is pleased to announce that we will be working in
partnership with the Barons Court Project (BCP) during 2024 and they will also be one
of our partners for 2024 Stamford Bridge Sleep Out.

Before Christmas, Mark Meehan and Cliff Auger from Chelsea Supporters’ Trust went
along to Barons Court Project to meet Chief Executive, Michael Angus and his staff to
hear about the good work they do for people in the borough of
Hammersmith & Fulham who have mental health issues or who are homeless.

Barons Court Project is the only day centre in the borough who support
people on low incomes, homeless or vulnerable to mental health issue. The
provide one to one support to people on:

  • Housing
  • Benefits
  • Mental Wellbeing
  • Employment/Training

They are open Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 4.00pm and provide a
place where people can have a hot meal, have a shower, do their laundry,
charge their phone, and get replacement clothing.

They exist to help put people in control of their own lives by providing stepping
stones to get their live back on track with a practical and emotional support

During CST visit we were lucky to meet staff, and some of their 30 volunteers
including chef Simon who cooks regularly for guests at BCP. We were also able to
meet some of the guests who visited regularly for a hot meal.

During our visit we also met former guest and artist Guan who had spent several
years sleeping rough but who now hosts regularly art classes at BCP for other
homeless guests to attend.

This is part of a project set up by BCP called Homeless Made a social enterprise that creates greeting cards
where guests paint pictures that are then turned into greeting cards. This then
generates an income for the service users and BCP. We will be working with BCP
to promote Homeless Made during 2024.

We are grateful to Chief Executive Michael Angus for organising a visit for the
Chelsea Supporters Trust and look forward to working with BCP in 2024.
