Many of the families we support are lacking in confidence and have low self-esteem. They are exposed to a number of risks including drug and alcohol abuse, mental health issues, inter-generational conflicts, poor physical health, personal safety issues, homophobia, racism and have high unemployment and low numeracy and literacy levels. All these issues reduce their opportunities for personal and community development, which leads them feeling isolated and powerless.
Our mission is to support as many families as we can, by empowering them to become real leaders in their communities. Over the last few years, we have helped 244 people into PAID work and in one year our mobile food bank has helped 118 people out of food poverty, delivering £12,900 worth of food donations.
Last year our ‘One Mic, One Life’ pilot project engaged over 800 local people and 48 young people took part in fun and exciting workshops culminating in an Awareness Event for the whole community.
We have an incredible network of over 40+ regular volunteers, who dedicate an average of 8 hours a month, helping to run our Mobile Food Bank and work with local families on our various projects.
