H.O.P.E. (Helping Others Positively Engaged in Community)
We’re a local community group based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire and we aim to help people get more involved with their local community. We were founded in September 2017 by Peter Robertshaw, who wanted to help make a difference in the local area.
He has since recruited several volunteers who help with every aspect of the running from fundraising to the behind the scenes admin that needs to be done.
With the help of all of our volunteers and people who kindly donate funds and time to us, we are able to offer several services and we hope to increase the amount we do in the near future. Our biggest project currently is our cooking course, that is run by a dietitian, which enables each participant to gain a level 2 food hygiene certificate.
We run a regular parent and toddler group, on Tuesdays 12.30 - 2.30pm £1 per child and 50p per additional sibling snacks included
And in the near future we will also be running a mental health support service, a garden tidying service and many others!
We really appreciate all the people who help us, whether that be through volunteering, donating or just sharing us with people they know, without all your help we wouldn’t be moving as fast as we are!
