In addition to the in-house delivery, 29 Hope Street accommodates a wide range of organisations that utilise the premises for an array of activities including meetings, public events, training, conferences and functions  

We operate as a social enterprise with all the profits from our Bar/Bistro and Venue being ploughed back into the non-profit side of the organisation to deliver community self-help and voluntary projects.

Since we opened our Hope Street Building in 2001 the Initiative Factory/CASA has become an open house to groups and individuals from across the Merseyside community who are fighting for a cause or have been hurt and victimised by the structures that govern today’s society. We have hosted a wide range of supportive events either by direct involvement or by offering the use of the building and its facilities. Below are some examples of the type of supportive work the Initiative Factory/CASA has been involved with over the past couple of years.

  • Merseyside Families for Justice (Victims of Murder & Violence)
  • Amy (Young Wirral girl with a rapid aging disease)
  • Gamble Brothers (Helping to reunite family members with relatives they hadn’t seen for 50 years)
