Best Hope was established in June 2010 to bridge gaps in community service provision by attending to the needs of socially, economically and financially marginalised people. Best Hope actively promotes social cohesion, community integration and access to services for disadvantaged people.
We are presently delivering Grassroots Richard Weare funded project to help unemployed or economically inactive people to gain employment, start-up their own business, and gain further training or learning opportunities. Contact us for more details.
What people have been saying about us…
I run an activity group for over 65s to encourage them to get out of the house, avoid isolation and have fun. Augustus and his musical group visited us yesterday and we enjoyed their music immensely! Everyone joined in, even the quiet shy ones and we were speaking about it for a long time afterwards. Everyone seemed very happy and we will be inviting Augustus back to play for us next year, hopefully for longer. Thank you all. Am happy to promote these nice guys to similar organisations in my area.
The first time I came to Best Hope, I was nervous and did not know anyone. But as the days go by I learned how to use the photocopier, and made phone calls and answered them. These 5 days of work experience at Best Hope was the best. And they made me feel welcome. I believe that this experience will benefit me in the future.
The training given by Best Hope was really helpful for me to acquire the necessary skills and experience required to work in the real job. It helped me to gain professionalism and I would like to add that the training helped me to gain lots of confidence, ability to work with people and helped me to get a job. Finally I would like to say that Augustus is a very kind, hard working man who is passionate about his profession and he also expects us to be passionate about the job. I really enjoyed working with Best Hope.
