The Cardinal Hume Centre enables people to gain the skills they need to overcome poverty and homelessness.
This is what happened at the Centre in 2011/12.
The Centre gives homeless young people, families in need and local people the support they need to realise their full potential. The Centre focuses on four areas of need: income, housing, education and skills, and legal status.
Income: We offer advice on employment and money management.
Housing: We offer hostel accommodation for 16 – 21 year olds and housing advice and advocacy.
Education: We offer English language and literacy, IT training, work experience, early years learning and parenting classes.
Legal Status: We offer accredited immigration advice and advocacy.
Every person who comes to the Centre has different needs and we offer a comprehensive response on one site, so that people can make informed choices about their future.
The Centre welcomes people from all backgrounds in line with Cardinal Hume’s founding ethos of offering sanctuary.
