Cedar House, based in Broxtowe and run by independent charity Cedar Housing Nottingham, is a residential project for homeless young women. “It was a pleasure to meet and talk with everyone connected with Cedar House” said Anna “I spoke to a number of residents, mainly youngster aged under 18 all of whom had been homeless until they came to Cedar House. They receive excellent support from three workers as well as other members of staff and a team of volunteers. I am glad that Cedar House has secured funding notwithstanding the cuts in public expenditure.” The charity was set up by the congregation at Nottingham’s Trent Vineyard church, who came up with the idea of creating a charity to help homeless people linking in with their other work for people living rough or who have fallen on hard times. Volunteers helped to create a modern and attractive living environment for ten residents who all have their own rooms, a large kitchen and living area.
