THE Hop 50+

“It’s so easy to get into a rut, stay at home and not get out. You need to get out there and find somewhere like this where you can meet people.”

The Hop 50+ is a café and centre with over 1,000 regular customers. People tell us it is their lifeline: that they feel they belong somewhere; it gives a focus to their week, and a reason to get up and go out. The home-cooked food and great coffee, combined with good company and the resulting connections people make, all play an integral part in maintaining physical and emotional health.

Throughout the time the coronavirus is limiting our activity, we are supporting as many people as we can through telephone calls and helping people to find other support including shopping & meal deliveries.

“Today we are downloading the Brighton & Hove Buses timetable app, which will be very useful to help Debbie move around the city. Don’t be afraid of technology;  just use it for what you need and want to use it for. If you  just want to send emails or learn how to make and receive telephone calls, just focus on that.”

Bob, Tech Buddy at Hop 50+

“After talking to staff at the drop ins, I am now more confident applying for jobs and attending interviews”

“I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t gone to Stopover. It was the first place ever I could call home and feel safe, and that someone cared about whether I came home or not.”

Chloe, Ex-Stopover Resident

“I love coming to WASP; there is always loads to eat and we never get shouted at. We have to stick to the rules and, mostly, we do. Garry always asks me if I have done well at school today”
