Our values of care, compassion, generosity, and respect remain the guiding force of our work

Alabaré was founded out of the simple act of providing a place of safety for one homeless man, Bob.

Over the years, our charity has grown and developed way beyond those initial ambitions, but our goal remains to help people who are vulnerable build bright futures, homes and minds for themselves.

Who we are today

Today, we support thousands of people each year through our homes and services across England and Wales. Our founding principles of care, compassion, generosity and respect have remained the guiding force of our work. We are a charity supporting vulnerable, homeless and marginalised people.  We help them transform their lives, providing accommodation and helping them gain the skills, confidence and opportunities to live a fulfilled life (Based on John 10:10 I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly).

Our vision

We welcome people of all faiths and none to our homes, and to be part of Alabaré and work so that together we can achieve our vision of a society where everyone has the opportunity to live a fulfilling life.

We continue to be true to our Christian roots; driven by a passion for those overlooked, neglected or abandoned by society in a way that does not judge but rather offers hope and practical care to those who need it most.

Support is provided at Alabaré by our team of chaplains under the guidance of our Senior Chaplain.

  • Professional support and advice – offering choice and explaining consequences.
  • Training in life skills.
  • Care, compassion and respect – listening to their needs and aspirations.
  • Support in overcoming the barriers they face in transforming their lives.
