Our supported accommodation for the homeless, Crispin House, has recently undergone a significant transformation, both inside and out. Archway Homes, a local developer, enlisted the help of their various contacts and, in two stages, refurbished the whole building.

Stage one consisted of painting the walls and woodwork, attending to plumbing and electrical defects and replacing the carpets throughout, as well as getting their cleaners in to give the whole place a good scrub.

The second stage involved sprucing up the exterior. Repainting the woodwork, replacing some broken fencing, tidying up the garden and providing a brand new door sign.

Robert Bisset, CEO of CATH was full of praise for the relationship they have built up, “Archway Homes continues to pull out all the stops to support CATH and ensure Crispin House is in tip top condition. Living environments impact on people’s daily lives; Archway recognise this, and have become a determined partner in raising standards for the homeless community.”

Paul Pedley, Chairman at Archway Homes remarked “CATH do fantastic work for the homeless in Chester and it’s wonderful for us to be able to help such a worthwhile cause and give something back to the community.”
