WHO ARE WE

 The Hope Centre is a community hub serving the local Partington and Carrington area. Working under the umbrella of local charity The Hideaway, the Hope Centre is run by the community, for the community in partnership with local service providers. 

We believe that by working together and each playing to our strengths, we can ensure that no matter what people need, local help will be available.

We do the things we're good at, all our friends and partners do the things they're good at, and we all work together to make sure that every resident knows what those things are. 

We're based on Wood Lane at the 4 shops. Our centre is open Mon-Fri 9.30am - 4pm for all M31 residents to drop in anytime. 

How does it all work?

The Hope Centre has a range of school uniform for the local schools. Members can pop in anytime and purchase uniform, and we welcome donations of local uniform and new shoes.

Grocery

Our grocery uses donated and excess stock from others and passes it on to the community. For just £3 members can come once per week and fill a large bag of food and essentials of your choice for your family, including bread and fresh produce.

Single items

Alongside our donated grocery stock, we also stock a range of items for sale in smaller than usually sizes or quantities. If you're tired of wasting food and just need 2 sausages or a couple of eggs, our Buy What You Need section will save you money and allow you to buy single portions.
