Hope through Winter
Support for your household this winter is available through the Hope Centre in a range of ways.
The first step in accessing help is to be a Hope Centre member. If you're not already registered, complete the membership application form on this page then call into the Hope Centre or phone to get your membership card and number. Alternatively, pop into the Hope Centre.
Help with food
Through the winter, Hope Centre Gold members can continue to do a weekly shop at the Hope from just £3.50. But we realise at Christmas time this just won't cut it!
From 12th - 23rd December the Hope shop will be stocked with all the essentials plus tonnes of Christmas goodies and treats. Meats, cheeses, loads of fresh foods and plenty to keep you going over the Christmas period.
The Christmas big shop is available for all Hope Centre members and is available for just £5. Use the form below to book your big shop day.
Help with toys
For families with children under 10 who are struggling with the cost of toys for your own children this Christmas, we may be able to help. After registering with the Hope Centre, complete the form below. We'll be in touch shortly to arrange a chat with one of our team about what help you need and other support we can offer you. After chatting through your circumstances with our team, if they feel we're able to help you'll be invited to the toy workshop where you can choose a number of toys from our selection of brand-new toys for a contribution of £5 per child.
To qualify - it is for children who live with you, live in Partington and you are responsible for.
The toys on offer have been generously donated for families in need and therefore we ask that only families who genuinely need the help apply.
Please note the toys are suitable for children under 10 years old. We do not have help available for older children at present, unfortunately.
Why is it that emergencies only happen when we're completely out of money? If you're in a difficult financial situation and need help with essential items you can contact Trafford Assist for help in the first instance. If you have been refused support, please use the form here or contact the Hope team and we will look at whether there's anything we can do to help you.
As well as the things above, you can use the form below to request support with:
- an appointment to chat to one of our advisors about your situation
- something else
