This Autumn, we will once again be welcoming individuals and families within our local community into the Hope Centre as we re-launch three of our projects – Jigsaw, Polkadots and Connections Cafe.


Every Monday 10:30-12, during term-time, beginning on Monday 13th September, families with children aged 0-4 will be able to enjoy age-appropriate play, stories and songs and sensory and roleplay experiences aimed to encourage child development.  Our safe, inclusive and welcoming learning environment will also provide the opportunity for parents and carers to build relationships and be part of our friendly support network.


Every Wednesday 2-3:30pm, beginning on the 15th September, Jigsaw will be offering a warm and friendly welcome for anyone aged 55 years and over, to participate in a variety of crafts, games and activities.  This is not only an opportunity to try new skills or find new interests and hobbies but also to just relax and chat over a cup of tea or coffee, combatting isolation and loneliness with fun and friendship. A place for everyone to fit in!

NEW Connections Cafe

Coming soon – our newly re-invented Connections Cafe!  We are currently in the process of appointing a new Cafe Supervisor and putting the finishing touches to the cafe area at the Hope Centre to create an inviting and relaxing environment that can be enjoyed by everyone.  The Connections Cafe will be central to the vision of Hope Community Foundation, creating a safe space where relationships are built, meaningful connections are formed and needs are met.


If you share our vision for people take a look at the volunteer opportunities by clicking here or contact us at and we’ll arrange to chat with you about how you can find our fit here at Hope Community Foundation.
