Motherwell Community Share Hub
No referral needed, no questions asked.
The hub started in 2019 as ‘Crewe and Nantwich Uniform Exchange’, for the local community, a sustainable service that gave the local community a place to donate their no longer needed school uniform in return they could collect items they require. In October 2020 we launched as the Community Share Hub and the service has continued to expand how we support the local families.
Our vision is that women and girls are able to meet the challenges in their lives and access support, education, and advocacy whenever they need it, in order to fulfil their potential. We want to set our community up for success whilst reducing inequalities; we want all our community to benefit from this vital service.
Our sustainable, accessible to all scheme, provides a range of different services for ALL of our community with no questions asked.
Our support starts with expectant or new mums, a scheme with the local midwives and health centres providing vouchers to these families, which in return supplies them with a packed Moses hamper with items for mum and baby.
Our Baby Bank provides like-new items to families, cots, clothing bundles, travel systems, prams and lots, lots more.
Our hub stocks school uniforms, generic and branded items, stationery, and period poverty kits. And in addition, we have our fancy dress, and a community library rental service.
Whatever you may need, we will try our best to help.
Placed within the heart of Wistaston, the Community Share Hub is open every Tuesday and Thursday, 12 till 2 for you to use.
We stock both primary and secondary school uniforms, branded items, and generic items for many of the schools in Crewe and Nantwich.
Items have come from the local community in the aid to help with landfill and to ‘pass it on’ to others.
The average cost of a single uniform for a child is £101, these costs soon add up over the year.
At the hub you do not need to be referred in by an agency, we do not have a criteria for you to use our services. You can either call into the hub or place an order using the link below.
