About Us
Central Healthcare



The Day Centre opened in 1995 and was the first professionally staffed service set up by Churches Action for the Homeless (CATH).

The Day Centre is funded through a variety of sources:

Local Authority Grants (Perth and Kinross Council), fundraising activities, appeals to charitable trusts, CATH500 (covenanted donations scheme), contributions from Church congregations and members of the public.

The CATH Day Centre is a “drop-in” service (no appointment necessary) for homeless or vulnerably housed individuals who would find it difficult to live independently.

The Day Centre aims to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for individuals who may be experiencing varying degrees of crisis in their lives. Our staff are experienced and skilled at working sensitively with the people who access the Day Centre.  We recognise people’s individuality and by offering a safe and supportive environment, try to support and enable individuals to make informed choices about their lifestyles and current and future living/housing arrangements

Working with the local community

The Day Centre has now been opened for 15 years and this would not have been possible without the hard work of our volunteers and supporters that has allowed the Day Centre to reach 15 years working in the community.

The Day Centre are currently in the process of developing new working partnerships with other agencies and projects to provide more opportunities for the people who use our services.

Our partnership working with the Central Healthcare Team (CHC) allows service users of CATH and other organisations to access healthcare including a G.P, Community Psychiatric Nurse, Podiatrist and Community Nurse. CATH can make referrals to CHC and their staff also hold drop in sessions at the Day Centre providing access for individuals who would not routinely attend health services.
