The search for a new venue HOPS continues, with the media and radio coverage over the past few weeks, the profile of HOPS has been raised. This has not only served to raise the issue of needing  a new building but has drawn new children to HOPS services.

For the charity to continue it is vital we find a new building within the next month or so.

Unfortunately a small village Hall would not suit the requirements of the service that we provide.

We provide day care services for children with special needs, for this we need space. Wheelchairs and the need for  specialist equipment to be on hand takes up room  and many of our children are lively and need space to burn off their energy. We are regulated by Ofsted so any new premises we go into must be inspected and approved by them for use.

Here is what we need 

    Our needs are as such and must have the following
    must be accessible for wheelchairs both inside and out.
    must have space to enable installation of disability toileting facilities
    must have space to enable installation of specialist disability equipment ( sensory and soft play)
    must have space for kitchen facilities
    The outside space must allow school type fencing to be erected.


A140 corridor Needham to Diss
A14 corridor East of Ipswich to West of Bury St Edmunds
Mainly within the Mid Suffolk area, but we are willing to look at wider area.

 Both inside and out side space is essential  

we are looking for something ideally with the following approximate size


25 meters by 10 meters approx


25 meters by 20 meters ( or substantial outside space) 


We are looking to rent a building for a minimum of 5 years

       If you know of a building that may be suitable them please contact us
