Cardinal Hume Centre

The Cardinal Hume Centre works with homeless young people, badly housed families and those living in poverty, helping them learn new skills and build a better life.

Founded 1986

  • Mission statement

    The Cardinal Hume Centre's enduring mission is to provide for homeless young people, disadvantaged families, and those living in extreme poverty - including migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

    We strive for social justice by fighting exclusion, and enabling people to gain the skills to find sustainable housing, improve their economic well being and build resilience. Our person centred approach focuses on long-term change, as ultimately we know that suitable housing and employment are the surest routes out of poverty.

    In Westminster, London, we have a hostel, a nursery offering childcare for disadvantaged and disabled children and a wide range of advice and learning projects, including:
    - Legal assistance and representation
    - Employment and careers advice
    - Digital, IT and computer courses
    - Basic numeracy and literacy tuition
    - Volunteering opportunities
    - English language classes
    - Family learning and parenting
    - Welfare, housing and money management advice
