A partnership of churches, charities, agencies and communities

Surely everyone wants to live in a community where we all take responsibility for each other.  Communities caring for communities, neighbours caring for neighbours.  Many people across Rugby are committed to doing just that.  Here are some of our partners.

Hope4 - Lasting change, one life at a time.

“I was homeless, depressed and full of despair, sleeping wherever I could.  A Rugby Ranger told me to try Hope4, so I did, and from that moment on my life changed.  After 10 weeks of sleeping in night shelters and going to the Hope Centre every day for my meals, I got a flat from Orbit.

All the staff at Hope4 were brilliant in helping me out.  They put me in touch with bareboards so I could furnish my flat.

It’s now been 6 1/2 years that I’ve been in my flat and all is going well in my life.  I’ve got my dignity back.  I dread to think what would have become of me without the help of Hope4 and their staff, so I am eternally grateful.  A BIG thank you to all at Hope4.”
