We are delighted, bemused and encouraged to  receive several awards. Bemused because we feel that we have scarcely got going with the vision, but encouraged that other influential bodies believe that Hope into Action is on the right track

Winner of the 2013 CSJ Award.


Over 200 charities and projects were considered for the CSJ (Centre for Social Justice) awards and there were 6 winners. We were delighted and honoured that Hope into Action won an award. Ed Walker, Executive Director for Hope into Action commented:

“though we are aware there is so much we can do better we would like to dedicate it to all our church volunteers who have given up their time, energy and love and also to our tenants who are the real heroes of our story”.

“The Government values the contribution that Hope into Action makes towards helping vulnerable adults regain their place in the community. I wish them continuing success in the future.”

– Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith MP, Founder and Patron of Centre for Social Justice.
