Plymouth Hope

Our charity

Plymouth Hope is a Devon based charity which aims to promote social inclusion by supporting people who may otherwise have become socially excluded. All our programmes promote racial harmony by working with children and young people and their families; providing opportunities for sport and activity, supporting education and raising awareness about different racial groups. We endeavour to promote good relationships between people from different racial backgrounds through providing opportunities for community participation in healthy recreation, support with school life and a commitment to lifelong learning.

Plymouth Hope is continuing its Active Communities programmes and entering a new phase with an increased commitment to supporting learning for children, training for volunteers and advice and guidance for parents. Please have a look at our news page for our updates.

The charity also assists its overseas branches and partners using sport as a tool for poverty relief in education and health.

Current Crowdfunding for the Connectivity Project - Working Partnership with DCRS, ODILS, Plymouth City Council, plus launch funding through other partners.
