Weekday Drop-In Sessions at The Hope Centre

Throughout the week our aim is to provide useful drop-in sessions helping you to connect to information advice and resources that can help you.  These are short sessions held in our cafe area and will be attended by one of our partner organisations who can sit with you over a coffee and work through how what they provide may be able to support you.

You don’t have to book in at all.  You can come on the day and chat with our drop-in advisers.

Cost of Living Drop-in

This session is led by Danielle Lee from Manor & Castle Development Trust.  She will provide help and advice on what is available to help you to navigate your way through the cost of living crisis.

Sparkle Drop-in session

Sparkle Sheffield is a charity supporting families affected by Autism including young people.  The coffee mornings we run at the Hope Centre are a space where you can come and ask anything as there will always be a sparkle volunteer but also other parents and carers who are in a similar situation.  No question is too big or small.  This is a great support network.  We host the sessions in our community cafe on monthly basis with access to the Community grocery at the same time.

Session Times: 4th Friday of each month 10:00am to 12:00pm
