Speaking to students about homelessness

We are available to visit schools, collegaes and universities and talk to students about the issues facing homeless people and about poverty and what the centre is doing to help. It can be a powerful message to students of various ages to look at issues which are increasingly affecting  all walks of society.

If you would like to arrange for a visit or talk, or would like to fundraise for hope, contact us on 0845 519 937 or email sue@northamptonhopecentre.org.uk
