Last summer Prince William and The Royal Foundation of The Prince and Princess of Wales launched Homewards, a new project aimed at ending homelessness in the UK. Six flagship locations were selected to take part in the project, one of which is Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

The Homelessness Partnership BCP welcomed the Prince to Bournemouth to visit  Faithworks Carpentry Workshop and announce the regions participation in the project. The locations have made a commitment to end poverty in their areas and Homewards will be supporting them to achieve that ambition.

Homewards aims to give people across the UK hope that homelessness can be prevented by showing them the progress we can make when we collaborate. Its a big task, but I firmly believe that by working together it is possible to make homelessness rare, brief and unrepeated, and I am very much looking forward to working with our six locations to make our ambition a reality”

Hope for Food is proud to be a member of the Homelessness Partnership BCP and as a volunteer run charity feeding the homeless in the BCP area, we welcome the Prince’s initiative and his desire to eradicate homelessness in all its forms. We look forward to supporting the Homewards project in any way we can.
