Welcome to the Colchester Korban Project!
Colchester Korban is a Christian based charity providing supported housing for 16 – 22 year olds who have found themselves in crisis. We aim to offer young people a home, support and guidance as they prepare themselves for independence. Colchester Korban was started as a churches’ response to youth homelessness.
Nearly half of people living in supported accommodation are between 16 and 24. Young people have been hit hard by reductions to youth services and the welfare reform and assistance with accommodation is needed now more than ever.
Homelessness among young people is often a hidden issue and many people facing homelessness are still in education, training or work. The rising pressure that comes from being faced with homelessness has a devastating effect on all areas of life.
Colchester Korban has been providing young people with a place of care and safety for a number of years. We continue to see homelessness among young people as an issue that must be addressed.
