Bay6 is a project with one simple aspiration: to ensure no-one leaving hospital sleeps rough.
We offer advice and support to patients who find themselves at risk of homelessness, and seek to both resolve their immediate housing issues prior to discharge, and then provide support to ‘move on’ into longer term, sustainable accommodation.

Nightstop provides same day emergency overnight accommodation for young homeless people, between the ages of 16-25, in the homes of volunteer hosts who have been trained and vetted.
Young people are referred to Nightstop by agencies and are risk assessed before being placed with a suitable host. Nightstop then works with the young person and other agencies to find them longer term accommodation.
Community Housing Aid and Exeter City Council are leading a successful collaborative bid with 3 other District Councils to the Department for the Communities and Local Government ‘Trailblazers’ fund. The fund is for local authorities to trial new initiatives, responding to the specific needs in their communities and focusing on prevention at an earlier stage.
Following a competitive tender, CHA and our partner Julian House were awarded a 2 year contract to deliver a ‘homeless prevention champion’ service. The service has 3 main aims:
1. Identify & promote homeless ‘champions’ and innovative approaches to homeless prevention
2. Provide support, training and assistance to any agency supporting homeless prevention
3. Oversee a ‘prevention pot’ (£) which will offer ‘per outcome’ funding to agencies preventing homelessness.
