Hopewell Logo

Hopewell is a user led registered charity (No 1024631) registered in 1993. We work with vulnerable adults, women and families from marginalised communities living with long-term health conditions, poverty and economic pressures. Most of our participants are from Black, Asian and minorities ethnic communities. 

The charity offers wellbeing activities and support that improves health and wellbeing. Reducing isolation and loneliness. Encourages resilience and healthy living for people of all communities. 

The activities and services are delivered by people from many backgrounds and they speak many languages. All the trustees, staff and volunteers are local people

We increase local people's capacity, confidence and skills to support their own communities. To allow them to live active and independent lives while creating social networks that expand outside of the charity’s activities. This reduces social exclusion and inequalities through its opening doors project.

We offer volunteering opportunities to local people with a focus on people who are aged over fifty. Who can make a positive contribution to their communities as well as developing and increasing skills and confidence to enhance the chances of employability and further education.

We offer information, sign posting to social care, housing and welfare benefits enquiries.

We are also a Third Party Reporting Centre for Hate Crime. 

Third party reporting centres for hate crime are based within organisations and groups across the City of Manchester, and independent from the City Council or Greater Manchester Police (GMP). 

The reporting centres enable victims of hate crimes to both seek support and be encouraged to report hate crime and hate incidents in an environment of their choosing where they may feel more confident and comfortable.

A hate crime is any criminal offence that is motivated by hostility or prejudice based upon the victim’s: Disability, Race, Religion or belief, Sexual orientation, Transgender identity or membership of an Alternative sub-culture.

Third party reporting can also be made directly to GMP by using the 101-telephone number or 999 if the incident is an emergency 

Or by accessing the national True Vision hate crime reporting website: Report It
