Our approach

The Cardinal Hume Centre enables people to gain the skills they need to overcome poverty and homelessness.

How we work

Our aim is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty for our clients. We believe that how we work is as important as what we do.

We wanted to be sure that we are clear on how our services support our clients so we developed our own theory of change. This shows what we do, how we do it and the change we hope to make with our clients.

Business plan

We want to focus our efforts on young people, children and families. To tackle homelessness, poor housing and poverty at a young age and break its cycle into later life. We want to see the value in each individual and nurture potential, helping young people and families to thrive.
