Hope Centre Partington
Main organisation: The Hideaway Partington
What is The Hideaway?
The Hideaway opened in April 2018 as an educational play centre and café for the local community. The large play facility quickly grew in popularity and introduced courses, workshops and other services for the benefit of families and the wider community. At the start of the covid pandemic the play centre was transformed into the Hope Centre – a central point for co-ordinating support, distributing food and ensuring our whole community was cared for.
Since then the organisation has grown enormously and now hosts a fantastic family and education team who exist to support families throughout Trafford and residents in Partington in a whole range of ways. As well as courses and training we provide mentoring, support groups, lending libraries, adult literacy and a huge packed programme of fun educational support for children of all ages. Through much of the week the Hideaway is open access for anyone with children who would like to visit and play for a low entry fee.
What does the Hope Centre do?
In order to continue supporting the community after the Hideaway was allowed to reopen, the Hope Centre opened as an independent space taking on an empty shop unit in the heart of Partington. From there we’re able to provide a safe drop-in space for the local community to speak to someone face to face as well as a food pantry, school uniform and other practical support.
All members of our community can use the Hope Centre and the services it provides on its own. Along with practical help through the Hope Centre we’re able to draw on other members of our wider family and education team to offer personal mentoring, social activities, budgeting support, employment help and so much more. We specialise in family support and have a team who work closely with the schools and Trafford Team Together to not only provide intervention work with one member of a family, but we look to strengthen, equip and encourage the whole family together.
