We offer hostel accommodation to homeless young people (16 – 24 year olds) and housing advice and advocacy.

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.
