We strive towards a society where every individual has a safe place to live and the right to access the support and opportunities they need to fulfil their potential.
The Cardinal Hume Centre enables people to gain the skills they need to overcome poverty and homelessness. We focus on four areas; income, housing, education and skills, and legal status. The Centre gives homeless young people, families in need and local people support to realise their full potential.
With integrity, we strive to be true to our founding ethos and to living out our vision and mission; we are honest and we are accountable to our stakeholders.
With respect, we seek to be non-judgemental, to listen, acknowledge each other's worth and to put people at the centre of our work.
Through compassion, we will demonstrate our care for each individual who comes to the Centre in the quality and consistency of the services we offer to them.
To promote inclusiveness, we reject social exclusion and welcome diversity; we offer our services regardless of racial origin, of religion or politics; we will not discriminate on the grounds of gender or sexual orientation.
To encourage empowerment, we will provide holistic support to our clients in helping them to identify their needs and in making informed choices about their lives.
