Noah's Ark

Our completely unique Noah's Ark was designed especially for the Hideaway and paid for by our friends at Trafford Housing Trust. Situated in the centre of our cafe area, downstairs we host the Hope Centre office and our community education space. Upstairs is a gorgeous eating area for families and perfect for children having a private birthday party. 

Our cafe is also full of animals. Each one was donated and named  by our visitors, supporters and organisations who love the Hideaway. Children love to spot the animals and they're a great talking point. Paulo Panda accepts coins in his mouth and loves to pose for photos with children but please don't touch the other animals! 

Hope Centre

The front of the Ark is our Hope Centre admin base. Our team in here co-ordinate volunteers, food parcels, deliveries, events and community social activities. 


Our educational classroom has a packed programme of courses, hosts Step Up, support groups, training and other activities. It can be booked for training or community purposes.


The upstairs seating area is used as a general seating area and for private party's. The space can hold around 25 children (without social distancing). To book go to our party information.


We run a programme of community and wider events as well as taking private bookings for our cafe, ark, classroom and centre as a whole. If you would like to host an event contact us.
