Our history

In 1980, at the suggestion of Cardinal Hume, the Daughters of Charity opened a day centre – now the Resource Centre – with a single paid employee and a handful of volunteers.

Now the UK’s largest centre for homeless and insecurely housed people, The Passage not only offers immediate help and longer-term support, but also provides and develops a wide range of value-led support services, including innovative accommodation projects.
