We are delighted to share with you our latest Hope into Action Annual Review. It has been another amazing year for us with 9 more housing opening and a further 14 in the pipeline. In the last year we have set up homes on the Isle of Wight, Reading, Ipswich, Lincoln, Nottingham, Norwich, Peterborough and Wolverhampton. You can read about Heath Monaghan, the inspiring church leader at our new partner church on the Isle of Wight on page 10.
Mubarak’s story on page 8 is a journey of hope, perseverance, faith and the desire for a better life. He left his family in Sudan, risked his life crossing the Mediterranean to come to England to start a new life.
Read Ed’s reflections of our 2016 conference, a wonderful day where tenants were presented with awards by Dr Rowan Williams. There were thought-provoking and practical seminars throughout the day. Our annual conference is fast becoming the leading national conference on hoe church can help the homeless in England. Read more on pages 12.
It is difficult for any charity to accurately monitor outcomes, but the ‘Monitoring our Impact’ article on pages 18 and 19 show what we monitor and the positive difference we are making in peoples’ lives. For example 91% have maintained their tenancy over the year, 87% who have been to prison have abstained from crime and 92% who had issues with drugs have reduced their drug intake. We can only makes these differences thanks to your support.
