Welcome to Bright Hope in North West Leicestershire
Bright Hope in North West Leicestershire supports individuals who have a condition that leads to a reduction in quality of life or who have been diagnosed with a life limiting condition as well as offering support to their partner or carer.
Formally known as Hospice Hope, in 2012 it started by offering a weekly drop in support group (called a Support Café) in Ashby de la Zouch.
The charity has grown from strength to strength and today successfully offers a wide range of support services including, 3 Support Cafés located in Ashby, Ibstock and Whitwick; counselling, befriending, complementary therapy, wellness services and a new day care service (starting early 2024). The Charity has recently changed its name in anticipation of the opening of our new building in early 2024 - Bright Hope House, purpose built to be the charity’s headquarters and home to our support services.
Bright Hope House
Set in landscaped gardens with a large car park, including electric car charging points Bright Hope House is situated on Talbot Lane, Swannington on land owned by North West Leicestershire District Council which was previously used as storage for spare wheelie bins. Generously financed by Bloor Homes, including most of the fittings and furniture, Bright Hope House was built by A&H Construction and Development, Halesowen and is due to be handed over in early 2024.
Bright Hope House will be home to our new day care service, accommodating up to 24 people three days a week, where guests can enjoy a range of activities and a hot meal at lunchtime, prepared in our own large kitchen and served in our warm and friendly day room.
Bright Hope House will also provide smaller rooms for our counselling, complementary therapy and wellbeing services. There are quiet areas for people to use and a large reception area. Conference and function rooms, a hobby/ crafting room and workshop are also available, hosting a wide range of activities provided by ourselves and other local organisations.
