Support for your family
We have a range of ways to help you with your children and the associated costs this year thanks to our partners and supporters such as Trafford Housing Trust.
Kids Food help
During the school holidays we will continue to offer small children's food parcels this year to help out as your children are at home. This is open to anyone locally who needs it, not just those entitled to Free School Meals.
During the October half term, frozen, healthy meals will be available for each of your children. Use the form below to apply by 14th October.
Uniform and school essentials
In the Hope Centre we have a huge range of pre-loved school uniform, and lots more in the back so if you can't see what you need, just ask. In addition to this, we are able to provide a limited number of small grants for other school essentials such as bags, coats, shoes and even school equipment. Just have a chat with one of our team members to access this help.
Family team support
Sometimes we all just need a little extra help, whether that's someone to moan at, get advice or learn from or just lend a helping hand. We have a dedicated family and education team which includes a dedicated worker for families, for kids, for young mums, for dads, for carers and for youths. The team can all offer 1-1 support and advice, and run a range of free courses and support groups. We even have an in-house sleep specialist! If you would like to have a chat with someone and find out what we can do, drop us an email today.
At the Hope Centre we have a range of brand new children's toys to help you out at Christmas and through the year for birthdays. If you need toys for your own child's birthday, you can choose 5 toys for £5 in our store. Just contact the team to arrange.
We totally understand that clothes are expensive, and children just keep growing! We're currently working on new projects with our friends and partners to help with the cost of clothing on a long-term basis. In the meantime, if you're struggling, please make an appointment with our team to look at what emergency assistance we can provide.
Kids food help
This October half term we will be distributing healthy, frozen meals and bread to help with your costs this holiday. There will be a choice of meals and a collection date (TBC) the week before half term.
Families with children who register will also be able to do an additional free shop in the Hope Centre during the half term week to help with rising costs.
