In response to Wolverhampton City Council’s declaration that the City motto has never been so relevant and their intention is that ‘we will reset, recover and relight,’ the Enterprise Homes Group has responded by calling on local Christians to join them in prayerful support for the initiative.

The Council has also stated that ‘by working as one city we will continue to look after our own and be bold about transforming the lives of our residents.’ Matt Lambert, CEO of the Enterprise Homes Group, commented, “As a Christian Social Enterprise based in Wolverhampton, the Council’s initiative resonates strongly with our values and we want to do what we can to support this. We are calling on the local Christian community to join with us – we know that prayer works!”

The United Nations which promotes Sustainable Development Goals, which are a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, recommends to ‘take an active interest in the governance and management of your city. Advocate for the kind of city you believe you need. Develop a vision for your building, street, and neighbourhood, and act on that vision.’

Making Wolverhampton inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable through inclusive partnerships resonates strongly with the vision of the Enterprise Homes Group of making homelessness history by working to transform our City together, ensuring that nobody gets left behind. The Group also aligns itself with the Untied Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
