Hopewell: Working with communities for wellbeing

This Manchester-based charity provides a range of services at the neighbourhood level to support local people.

Kingsley Ohia

"We support people who are socially isolated or otherwise marginalised by reason (primarily, but not exclusively) of age; disability or long-term illness; ethnicity, language, or culture; gender; or education." - Hopewell

The charity provides a hub for individuals in the Cheetham & Crumpsall, North Manchester area  to meet, socialise and take part in health-promoting activities such as yoga and physical exercise.

Hopewell's work closely matches the Five Ways to Wellbeing, helping people to:

  • Connect with others;
  • Be physically active;
  • Learn new skills;
  • Give to others;
  • Be aware of their surroundings.

As a result of the charity's work, its beneficiaries become:

  • More resilient (able to bounce back from life’s challenges);
  • More confident;
  • More informed;
  • More connected.

The charity also makes an important difference to the community more broadly by helping to break down barriers between different social groups.
