Hope into Action
Hope into Action is a registered charity whose unique purpose is to enable churches to house the homeless. Work began in summer 2010 with a handful of people passionate about changing homelessness in the city of Peterborough. We provide not just shelter and housing know-how but also friendship. Together with over 85 churches we provide direct support to people whom others have often given up on. The original home had a real heart for men coming out of prison. Homes are now available for a wide range of "homeless", people in recovery from addiction, people sleeping rough, women and children fleeing domestic violence, people coming out of rehab, former prostitutes, refugees, those suffering mental health issues and survivors of human trafficking. Our vision is for every church to lovingly provide the homeless with a home. The tragedy of homelessness is in every community. We believe that with our help, you and your church can do something about it.

Parks for Nottingham - Visit, Volunteer or Donate
0115 9152733
Parks and open spaces have looked after us during Covid, with many of us using them more during lockdown to get our daily exercise and fresh air. The Future Parks team are now suggesting we might like to give something back. There are different ways to help parks and open spaces - you can make a donation, which might go towards the Green Groups Fund that support keeping parks and open spaces litter free, carry out maintenance and make improvements for wildlife. Alternatively you might wish to donate to the wild flower meadows fund to create more wild flower meadows across Nottingham. Or you may wish to volunteer your time instead? Helping out in your local park or open space is a great way to help improve your community, gain new skills and meet new people.

Our monthly programme of photography walks are an ideal opportunity to develop your photography skills, meet new people, get tips and advice, find inspiration and set new goals.

Locations will vary and be confirmed prior to each monthly walk. Different areas of photography will be explored during each session and will be determined by the interests of all participants. These sessions are suitable for all levels of photography skills and experience. Just bring along a camera or camera phone. Routes will be planned to ensure they are accessible for all participants.

It’s quickly grown to become a precious lifeline for many who would otherwise be lonely and isolated across south Nottinghamshire. Our friendly volunteers can call, visit with you or meet with you once or twice a week to have a friendly chat, check on your welfare, offer advice and company and ensure that you have what you need. This includes directing you to other support which could help you, such as our Voluntary Transport and Handy Housekeeping services. You can talk to our befrienders about anything – a shared hobby or interest, memories, what’s in the news or an issue you’d like some help with, such as how to collect a prescription. Vulnerable and isolated people are directed to us by friends and family, GPs and social services. But if you’re not going out and feel you’d benefit from a comforting chat, you can ask to use the service yourself, loneliness can affect us all and at any time in life.

Welcome to the Ukrainian Culture Centre in Nottingham, which is run by the Nottingham branch of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB). For more than 60 years it has fostered a wide range of activities and groups including a Ukrainian language school, a choir, an orchestra, and dancing, theatrical and youth groups. The activities of the community are now run by second and third generation Ukrainians who still keep alive the culture and traditions of their parents. We provide services ranging from a weekly day centre for the most elderly members of the community, to scout groups for our youngsters.

Unanima is a Mansfield based theatre company that has been creating work since 2008. Our cast are exclusively neurodivergent, and using a collaborative devising process we create unique witty, provocative theatre based on their lives, experiences and questions about the world. Through compelling performances that invite audiences to ponder and wonder we seek to stimulate social change. We are becoming increasingly intolerant of neurodivergent people being overlooked and infantilised by society and we will continue to produce art that sparks solutions until this has stopped.

Wainman Trust
Our mission is to provide safe places for older people to enjoy life, be cared for and make new friends. Feeling lonely and isolated after Covid-19? Why not join one of our Together clubs? Specifically for the over 60’s the club provides members with fun, food and opportunities to make friends and try new things. The days’ activities are many and varied from quizzes, members sharing their stories, visiting speakers and entertainers, or our recent cupcake decorating competition, judged by our very own “Mary Berry.” Twice a month there is the opportunity to participate in armchair exercises before lunch. One of the many highlights of the day is sharing a delicious home-made lunch prepared from scratch by our own on-site chef’s. Regular day trips are also part of the life of the clubs. There have been river cruises, shopping trips, visits to Chatsworth House, Twycross Zoo, Matlock Bath, various garden centres and East Midlands Designer Outlet. Plus, a mystery tour of Derbyshire, a Christmas shopping expedition, a Skittles afternoon with lunch, excursions to the Nottingham Playhouse and Theatre Royal to see the Pantomime and ‘Top Hat’ respectively.
