About us

Who we are

inHope is a Christian charity with a strong legacy of over 30 years serving some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in Bristol. At the heart of all that we do is the firm belief that every person, no matter their circumstances, can transform their lives away from homelessness, addiction, poverty, and abuse. We accept every person who arrives at our doors, serving without condition. When clients are ready to make positive changes, we empower and equip them to make those changes, to improve their lives for the long-term.

We seek a fairer and more just society; free from poverty and hunger; free from oppression and discrimination; free from homelessness and isolation. Until these freedoms are achieved, we will continue to be here serving those most in need.

inHope is rooted in the Christian faith. God calls his people to love him, love our fellow neighbours and to help those less fortunate than ourselves. We believe in loving people as God loves them; our practical work is an expression of the love that God has for every human person.

Most of our staff and volunteers belong to local churches and would identify themselves as Christians. Our funding comes primarily from gifts and donations from individuals, churches and trusts who support the work we do.
