Our charity is all about local people helping local people in need. We give people the support and opportunities to feel better about themselves, be more active in the community and get back into work. Our team provide the basics through our soup kitchen and give a hand up not just a hand out through new skills, experience and qualifications.
We could not do any of this without the dedicated support of our team – the CEO, Lianne Kirkman, Trustees, Staff and Volunteers.
