Schools can contribute strongly to what we do

We are available to visit schools, colleges 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. This can be linked to fundraising or simply as part of curricula work.

Students can get involved in fundraising and collecting goods like tins and other food and we can help groups come up with ideas for events.

We have a group of young people who act as youth ambassadors for Hope, raising awareness of the problems of housing and homelessness for young people and promoting our work with other young people. If you would like to become a youth ambassador for Hope, contact us.

If you would like to arrange for a visit or talk, or would like to fundraise for Hope, contact us on 01604 214300 or email tanya@northamptonhopecentre.org.uk
