Homestead of Hope


I began coming to the Good Shepherd Welcome Centre (run by the Homestead of Hope) shortly after it opened in 2015. I am 86 years old and I live at home with my daughter. I come here for lunch every week where we are all looked after with loving care from the ladies who make tasty meals for us. We also have lovely deserts and cakes.

As soon as we walk in, we are introduced to any new people who have arrived and then offered a cup of whatever we would like. It’s all good company and plenty of chat going on across the tables. During the COVID lockdown we missed the company of the ladies so much.

It is good to be back again now, we enjoy the good hot home cooked meals, friendship, smiles and chatter with our friends and the volunteer ladies and gents who serve us from the Homestead of Hope.

If you would like to Donate to our worthy cause we would be most grateful.

  3. To offer emergency relief accommodation to the homeless, refugees, victims of natural disaster and people in crisis situations.
