Welcome to Hampers of Hope!
Hampers of Hope is a Christian charity, committed to relieving poverty, restoring dignity and reviving hope, across North East Cheshire. We do this through our Food Bank and our four Hope Centres. Find out more about us >
A food bank
Thanks to donations of non- perishable foods from local churches, schools, businesses and individuals we are able to provide 3-5 day emergency food hampers to people in crisis who have been referred to us by over 50 agencies representing health and social care professionals.
We also run four Hope Centres, located in Knutsford, Colshaw estate, Lacey Green estate (both in Wilmslow) and Spath Lane estate (in Handforth) where we offer further support to help address the root causes of poverty. Those attending Hope Centres receive breakfast and lunch and are able to access to the following support services.
Providing access to an internet hub and support with job searches, CV writing, job applications and interview skills.
Money Management Courses
A free course, equipping people to take control of their finances and learn how to budget. The course is also available at our Hope Centres and other venues by request.
Those lacking basic IT skills, can sign up and log on to the ‘Learn My Way’ online course.
Our volunteers teach people to cook economical nutritious meals from scratch, enabling them to feed the family well for less.
Our services are available to everyone.
