Colchester Korban Project

Who is the project for?

Who do we help?

We provide supported housing for 16-25 year olds who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, who come from or have a local connection to the Colchester area. We often accommodate people who would be vulnerable at a larger scheme and some people who have learning difficulties and occasionally learning disabilities.
