The Cardinal Hume Centre enables people to gain the skills they need to overcome poverty and homelessness. We work with homeless young people, badly housed families and others in need.
We take the ethos of our founder seriously, ensuring that we offer both a non-judgemental welcome and a stable and safe environment for people in need to seek help and support. Everyone who comes to the Centre is treated as an individual and much of our work is done on a one-to-one basis.
"It is essential to recognise that homelessness is a complex problem, with immediate and also long term causes. I am no expert in these matters, but two of the most important reasons for homelessness are the increase in family break-up, and the growing shortage of affordable accommodation particularly for the lower paid. "
