Hope Centre Evaluation Report.

From a derelict former Youth Centre to a thriving Community Hub welcoming hundreds of people every week, it’s been a busy and brilliant start for the Hope Centre since we opened our doors in June 2016.  In the first year alone, our record of unique visits shows a footfall of over 22,000 people; comprised of Cafe users, Church activities, Foodbank, Keep Fit and other various programmes for people of all ages. This was all supported by about 70 volunteers and employees from the community.

None of this would have been possible without the help of some great people and organisations including The Big Lottery Fund, WREN, numerous Trusts and Foundations, and Nottingham Council – to those we offer our heartfelt thanks.

Special mention needs to go to our good friend Sean Tully at Fruitful Fundraising. Sean recently put together an evaluation report commissioned by the Big Lottery Fund and we wanted to share this with you. It’s a great summary of what we set out to achieve and how we have done so far.

Finally, just to say a big thanks to everyone involved in our journey so far – the best is yet to come!

“The Hope Centre has been an incredibly positive development. It has quite a strong volunteer base and an increasing number of people who are regularly using the place. It’s got a really nice atmosphere, it’s always really welcoming.”
