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 most of our income as well as using the centre to support those who visit us. But, there are of course many other ways to support our work as well.

Since March 2020 we've given away over £30,000 worth of food to those in need in the local community. We re-distribute all types of food donations through the Hope Centre and through the community larder by our front door. Donations should be brought to the Hideaway, Partington Shopping Centre, Central Road, Partington, Manchester, M31 4EL.
Make a financial donation
Financial contributions can make an incredible difference to what we do. They can be made towards something specific such as a new piece of equipment, particular staff role, the Hope Centre, our Christmas fund or something else. Donations direct to our bank account are our preferred method of giving so as not to incur fees.

We love re-homing good quality and brand new toys. Toys may be used in the Hideaway play centre, in our community Toy Library and new toys are stored and distributed to families in need (usually but not always at Christmas time)
Unusable toy donations are usually passed on to a charity shop.
We think books are amazing. There are many local children who have few books at home. We have a book exchange point in our corridor that anyone can swap or borrow books from at any time. We have story sacks available in our Toy Library and also have a large children's library in our play space. We also give out books through the Hope Centre. New books also make fantastic gifts as part of our Christmas community support. If you have books - new or old for any age, we will make great use of them.
