Who we are

The Cardinal Hume Centre has supported people facing poverty and the risk of homelessness for over 35 years. We stick proudly to the ethos of our founder Cardinal Basil Hume, who was passionate about

the potential found in every young person or child. Based in Westminster, we provide a place of welcome, sanctuary and professional support.


The role

Treasurer and Trustee
Cardinal Hume Centre
Central London

The Cardinal Hume Centre starts with a simple belief. Each person matters, each person has potential. Yet the consequence of that belief is that each person should have a life free from poverty, each person should have a safe and secure home.

​Yet London now faces a housing and child poverty challenge. Thousands are living in insecure, overcrowded or unsafe housing. More than 3,500 children from Westminster are homeless and live in temporary accommodation. In just two years between 2020 and 22 this number increased by more than 25%.

​The Cardinal Hume Centre focuses its efforts on young people, children and their families. We tackle homelessness and poverty now and break its cost into later life. We see the value in each individual and nurture potential helping young people, children to thrive.

​We are now seeking a new Treasurer to support the next stage of our journey. Of course, we want someone with experience in strategic financial management and of working with or within a Board. But equally important is a belief in our mission, a commitment to our values and a collaborative style that that can support the skill and potential found in our team.
