The values behind why we do what we do

  • We believe that every individual has worth
  • We believe that everyone should have the chance of a fresh start
  • We treat every homeless person we meet with dignity and respect
  • We go the second mile to provide support
  • We work in response to God’s call to give shelter to the homeless


The values behind how we work

  • We aim to honour the example of Jesus, pursuing excellence and integrity in all we do
  • We aim to be a demonstration of God’s love in action – helping, not judging
  • We aim to rely on God’s help through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit


These principles derive from the faith basis of the charity

WHC is a community project of local churches, which provide premises and most volunteers for WHC. The charity will help any homeless person, and welcomes volunteers from any faith and none.  Although WHC does not seek to impose the Christian faith on others, it is what powers the organisation, its welcoming atmosphere and the quality of its work.
