Cardinal Hume Centre’s leader calls for concerted action to tackle homelessness

More must be done to address the causes of homelessness which is ‘a stain on the nation’s conscience’, Cathy Corcoran, Chief Executive of the Cardinal Hume Centre writes today.

In an opinion piece for the Catholic Universe, penned ahead of Homeless Sunday on 28 January, the charity’s leader reflects on the alarming rise in poverty and homelessness, noting the 132% increase in street homelessness since 2010.

Highlighting the vital work of the Cardinal Hume Centre and its ethos of welcome and sanctuary, Ms Corcoran calls on charities, churches and community groups to consider how they too can take action to help some of the most vulnerable and isolated people in society.

Homeless Sunday provides an opportunity for church congregations far and wide to reflect on the continued rise of homelessness, the plight of those affected, and what more they can do to help.
