Crosscare Housing and Welfare Information (CHWI), Crosscare Migrant Project (CMP) and Crosscare Refugee Service (CRS), are based in Cathedral Street. The projects provide direct information and advocacy services in the areas of housing, homelessness, social welfare, immigration issues, health and wellbeing-related issues, emigration, returning emigrants and asylum seeker and refugee issues. The projects also have a remit to undertake research and publications work, and use the experience of their clients to promote solutions to recurring issues at a policy level. Our three information and advocacy services were used by 5,000 people in 2013.

Crosscare Housing and Welfare Information

The project also provides specialist clinics on social welfare and homeless issues with the help of volunteer interpreters for the Polish and Roma community.
