Renewed Hope Trust is a charity which exists to provide practical support to the homeless and disadvantaged of East Surrey. We work all year round to provide direct support to our clients responding to their specific needs regardless of how complex their situation.
This includes serving meals, offering shelter, clothing and assistance in finding employment as well as encouraging them to build relationships, listen and care for each other. We do this through the work of a Winter Night Shelter, year-round Drop-In service and Sunday lunch called the Real Meal. In an atmosphere of compassion and love, we seek to offer acceptance and respect to all.
RHT was founded as an interdenominational Christian group, and therefore faith in the universal love of Jesus Christ underpins all that we do. In practice this means we seek to support all who come to us, to give them a new hope and the opportunity to build a new life regardless of their background, circumstances, culture or faith.
