Community Hub

St John’s Centre became one of Trafford Council’s Community COVID Hubs in the first lockdown in 2020, and we are continuing to offer help with:

  • Food bank referrals and emergency food
  • Help with energy and bills
  • Wellbeing calls—if you’d just like a chat

The Hub is open Monday-Friday from 10am-2pm, but we can only help with gas and electricity top-ups from 10am-12.30pm.

Community Navigators from CAB are available in the Hub every Tuesday from 9.30am-12.30pm and 1-3pm. More details are available on our Citizens Advice page.

If you or someone you know in Old Trafford needs help from our Hub, you can call us during opening hours  or email For other parts of Trafford, please go to the Trafford Hubs website to find your nearest Hub – or if you are a Manchester resident, please go the City Council’s “Helping Hands” page to see how to get help.

If you would like to donate food or household supplies to be distributed by the Hub, please check our Food Donations Page to see what we need most.

If you are interested in volunteering in the Hub, please email or
