More about the charities
Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness (KCAH) are Corinthian Casuals’ charity partners and do excellent work in providing help to the homeless people in our Borough. KCAH have particularly requested food and clothing donations today. This is the second year of the partnership between Casuals and KCAH. The charity provide a wide range of support to homeless people in Kingston Borough.
Their Housing Crisis Intervention Service offers housing advice, welfare benefits advice and referrals to relevant housing options including hostels.
Through their Access Project KCAH is able to house up to 37 people with a local connection to Kingston upon Thames in its nine rented houses for a period of up to two years.
They run a Night Shelter every night for anyone in need; offering a simple meal, community, advice and somewhere safe to rest.
KCAH also provide a Job Club to help their clients find work which runs on Tuesday afternoons.
Other Emergency Support is given by providing clothing, sleeping bags, backpacks, a mailbox, simple mobile phones and food for people who are living on the streets or with no home to call their own.

Our fundraising today will also help support Kingston Carers Network (KCN) who are Kingstonian’s local community partners and are based in Tolworth Broadway. Kingstonian Football Club are in our forth season working together with KCN as "Community Partners".
A "carer" is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. A young carer is a carer under the age of 18.
KCN provide information and advice and a wide range of support to adult carers and young carers ( aged 5 to 18) and are affiliated to the Carers Trust. KCN provide support to more than 3,000 adult carers and over 700 young carers from the Kingston Borough through a wide range of services. They are part of a national network of carers centres affiliated to the Carers Trust.
KCN are also committed to ensuring that carers have a stronger voice, and so we offer a range of opportunities for carers to have a say in the way health, social care and carers’ services are run in the borough.
The football club and "Carers Centre" are working together to raise awareness of the needs of carers and young carers in and around the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames and offer Carers concessionary admission to Kingstonian Matches.
Kingstonian hold two Young Carers Days a year at home matches and Kingstonian Youth provide football fun days for young carers. We also raise funds to help provide additional activities for young carers. Today, we are expecting 25 - 30 guests from Kingston Carers Network and their new manager of their young carers project will be running an information project
