Support Us

Get Involved

There are loads of ways to support the Hideaway and our wider work. You can of course visit us, use our facilities and make the most of our play centre. As a charitable business we rely on having a busy play centre for much of our income as well as using the centre to support those who visit us. Using our centre and cafe is a great way to support our work. 


How can you help?

Donate food

In 2020 we gave away over £100,000 worth of food to those in need in the local community. We re-distribute all types of food donations through the Hope Centre. 

Make a financial donation

Financial contributions can make an incredible difference to what we do.

Donate time

Volunteers are absolutely vital to the success of all we do. Currently volunteers deliver food parcels, make wellbeing calls and do admin. Over the coming weeks we need help in our community shop and there are many many other opportunities for volunteering. 

Donate toys

We have a range of lending libraries, exchange points and uses for toys and books, old and new.  

If you are willing to make a donation to our work, we would also love to stay in touch. If you use one of the ways to donate such as setting up a regular standing order, please do drop us a quick email with your details and let us know on as we'd love to say thank you and stay in touch. 

Please note that as a not-for-profit organisation (CIC) we're currently unable to claim gift aid. However we are in the process of converting to full charitable status so this should change shortly.
