Our main work in the UK helps people experiencing homelessness and recovering addicts.

Our international development work is focused on a wide range of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which are the internationally recognized priority areas for development.

Volunteers are involved in most aspects of service delivery and work together with our expert staff. We also mobilise volunteers to work within their local communities supporting local needs.

We are going to develop this site further. If you have any thoughts or experience regarding the website, please email info@hopeworldwide.org.uk

Helping around 25 single homeless people every month

HOPE worldwide typically helps around 25 single people experiencing homelessness to find accommodation every month.

The ‘Two Step’ programme works in partnership with night shelters, day centres, councils and other charities that refer people to us for help finding housing.

Helping substance misusers to live in abstinent recovery

The ODAAT programme (One Day At A Time) helps substance misusers to live in abstinent recovery.

We provide a holistic approach to their recovery that includes a combination of therapies over six months. These include psychotherapy, one-on-one and group counselling, anger management, access to sport, yoga, peer support, life skills training, family therapy and work experience – in preparation for settled independent living.

We have a capacity for 11 undergraduates in our first and second stages. When completing the six-month residential programme, graduates have the option to enter our third stage supported houses, for which our capacity is 12 beds.

Graduates can also take advantage of ongoing aftercare. Some also access work-training programmes that can lead to NVQs in Health and Social Care at level 2 or 3. Others stay in our supported third stage housing until they build other careers, and safe social networks to move into their own accommodation.

80% of entrants last year (2019/20) successfully graduated.


Trainee counsellors, office administration, fundraising and more

Volunteers serve as trainee counsellors and provide floating support for our ODAAT programme.

In addition, many volunteers take part in fundraising events and community volunteer days.
