Providing a vital lifeline of food, friendship and a future to the most disadvantaged, homeless and vulnerable in and around Newcastle. Help us to make a difference.
Our dedicated team of volunteers were recently awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. Over 200 people are making a real, positive difference to the lives of our Friends. Could you join us?
Over 20 local businesses get involved every year
Without our business partners, we couldn’t provide the support we do. Help us to make a difference to the local community.
200 volunteers give us their time each year
There’s so many ways you can get involved as an individual. From volunteering, donating or helping to fundraise.
Charities and trusts are a vital lifeline
The support of charities, trusts and foundations, both regionally and nationally, make a significant difference.
Over 300 churches / 250 schools support our work
Through our educational programmes, we work with schools and churches to help inform and fundraise.
10 professional services work with us in the Kitchen
By providing a dedicated space for the City’s professional services, we can help them to engage with some of our hard-to-reach Friends.
That’ll be the 40,000 hot meals we provide each year both in our dedicated Alison Centre as well as on the street. As well as nutritious meals and comforting desserts, we also serve up side portions of friendship and help and advice to a better future.
