The Northampton Hope Centre is a day centre supporting around 120 homeless and disadvantaged people every day. 

We work to relieve poverty and tackle the causes of homelessness in Northampton by giving people a hand up not a hand out.

Recognising that if you continually provide hand-outs there is no incentive to become self sufficient our work is focused on helping others to help themselves, providing support and services that will enable individuals to take back control of their own lives.

We see a diverse range of people aged from 18 – 80+, which include:

- Homeless
- Previously homeless, often vulnerably housed (e.g. hostels) & struggling to re-integrate into society
- Long term unemployed/incapacitated
- Adults with drug/alcohol missue or mental health related issues
- Low income parents
- Single elderly people experiencing social exclusion and poverty

Founded over 40 years ago, we have grown in many ways but our basic aims remain true:-

- to combat poverty, disability, social deprivation and its causes through day to day support;
- to provide longer term training and development opportunities which enable clients to progress and hopefully re-integrate into mainstream society.

Our clients can access basic but essential services, such as hot and cold drinks, hot meals, food bags to take home, showers and recycled clothes; as well as access to workshops and training sessions, such as Creative Writing, Cookery and Art.

It costs us over £20,000 a month to keep the centre going, and we are continually seeking funding to help us with this. Our current fundraising efforts include, sponsored events, such as the Big Sleepout in January which raised over £26,000, and other events planned for throughout the year; applications to trusts and grants as well as constant liaison with local businesses, schools and churches. If you can help support us with any form of donation, that would be an enormous help.
