The Hope Project works with existing service providers, agencies, food bank and the local Church network to identify and reach those people in real need in our area. Families and individuals on low incomes or benefits are those who The Hope Project is particularly keen to help.
The Hope Project
The majority of our referrals are for individuals who have come from sheltered or temporary housing, living with or recovering from financial difficulties, or generally struggling with low or loss of income due to sickness or lack of employment opportunity.
Our goal is to show Gods love by blessing people with a new household item that they may not be able to afford or in some other way to help furnish their home.
In the last couple of years Hope has started to help people in the local community by tidying and clearing gardens that have for whatever reason become unmanageable. Teams of volunteers have helped several people now to reclaim their gardens and return them to a state that can be maintained. This is just another way that the Hope Project enjoys giving something back.
The Hope Project has three trained money coaches available to deliver the ‘Christians Against Poverty‘ budgeting course. Christians Against Poverty is a national, award-winning initiative, the courses are designed to help people take control of their finances, and then stay in control. Courses are run depending on demand and are normally made up of three, DVD based, group sessions aimed at providing practical help with money management.
