We’re Hopestead. We want to end homelessness in the East of England. We know that’s ambitious, we know we need a different approach and we know we can’t do it alone. Homelessness still exists everywhere, so more of the same is not the answer. Homelessness isn’t just about providing homes, it’s about tackling the causes of homelessness and building long term, sustainable solutions. This takes scale and a multitude of skills. Working in partnership with other organisations that share our commitment, we can meet our ambitious goal together.
We give our time, resources, skills and money to tackle the causes and impacts of homelessness, as well as homelessness itself. We believe in not just giving people a safe place to live, but understanding why they are experiencing homelessness in the first place, so we can make sure it never happens again. We believe in community, giving people the connections to build relationships, solve problems and try new things, to create the sense of belonging that makes their house a home forever. We empower people to take control and get past whatever is in their way, starting a new journey with the expectation that this will be the beginning of the rest of their lives.
As part of Flagship Group no-one is better placed to end homelessness. We consider that we have a fundamental responsibility to do so. This doesn’t only benefit those who are homeless. Sustainable communities benefit absolutely everyone. Regardless of who you are and whatever your life story, we should all have the chance to live in a society where the cycles of homelessness can be broken.
Because we believe everyone deserves a place to call home.
