About Hope Central
Bringing hope; relieving poverty
Hope Central is a Christian charity committed to bringing hope and relieving poverty in Cheshire East.
At Hope Central we recognise that everyone needs a helping hand at some point and we want to provide support to anyone in need.
We do this because we believe in a heavenly Father who loves everyone unconditionally, and we want to express that love in practical ways by supplying food to people in difficult circumstances and helping people address underlying reasons that contribute to their distress.
In 2022 we received over 2,300 referrals for food hampers.
Thank you to the churches, schools, businesses, supermarkets and individuals who have generously and compassionately provided the food, money and resources to make this happen.
