CHALK CIC supports the homeless and people living in poverty through our projects.

Established in 2015 by four local women who decided to make a change in their community. Two have moved on to pastures new but Wendy and Gemma are continuing the work that the founders set out.

In four years we have been instrumental in supporting the community of Oswestry and have now become the first port of call for organisations and members of the community to contact when needing help.

Our mission is simple – To create awareness of poverty and homeless in Oswestry and surrounding areas and provide services to alleviate suffering.


Community Projects

Open House

A free event on Christmas Day, tackling social isolation and hardship in the festive season, one Christmas dinner at a time.

Alert Furniture Scheme

Oswestry Homeless Action
