The Whitechapel Centre - homeless & housing charity
The Whitechapel Centre is a leading homeless and housing charity for the Liverpool region. We work with people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels or struggling to manage their accommodation. We are committed to helping people find and maintain a home and learn the life skills essential for independent living.
Several different services are based within The Whitechapel Centre.

MOVE PROJECT – Move Opportunities for Voluntary Employment
We offer an 8 week pre-volunteer training course which aims to be creative and fun to encourage those who are homeless, in housing need or socially excluded to consider volunteering opportunities. A 2 day intensive volunteer training course is also available to people who already demonstrate a high level of skill to prepare them for voluntary work at The Whitechapel Centre where we offer a range of different volunteering opportunities.
