Believing that everyone deserves a place to call home, Hopestead was set up by the Flagship Group because we want to end homelessness in the East of England.  We will strive to prevent, reduce and alleviate homelessness and its causes and create sustainable communities.

Homelessness still exists everywhere, so more of the same is not the answer.  We will need to be bright, balanced and brave and it will take scale and a multitude of skills to build long term, sustainable solutions and break the cycles of homelessness.

Hopestead will work in a number of ways, including directly delivering services itself, working in partnership with other organisations and individuals, making grants, undertaking leading research in the field and by pulling upon the time, skills and other resources of the Flagship Group and its employees.  We know we need a different approach and we know we can’t do it alone.  Check our Stories for examples of the work we are doing.

Hopestead’s principal office is at 31 King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PD.
