Since 2004, the Hope Centre has provided high quality advocacy, support and training for those most removed from society.
The Hope Centre charity grew out of a church initiative to support people challenged by unemployment, skills shortages and social deprivation and over the years we have provided courses, advice and guidance to hundreds of people in the borough.
The Hope Centre works across two sites – our base at Atherton Street and our Homelessness Day Centre at 103 Church Street to provide an award winning service to those who are most vulnerable in our community.

Once I attended the first class, my anxiety went down, I discovered the other attendees were nice and friendly and the teacher was easy to talk to and trust.
I enjoy volunteering as it gives me something to do and is a way to help others.
If it wasn’t for Hope I would still be in the position I was in before I attended the Breathe Programme, I wouldn’t have a job for feel good about myself. I can’t believe how far I have come in 9 weeks!
