Support our work

There are many ways to support our work. As a not-for-profit organisation currently unable to generate our own income, we need people to get behind us more than ever before. There are many aspects to our work and each of them act as network of holistic support with an aim to support people in as many ways as possible. We work with a range of vital partners and specialists to ensure that we can refer people in to other local service providers and support agencies. 

Regular giving

Join our 2400 Campaign

We're looking to raise an army of 100 regular supporters who can commit to giving £20 per month to help our organisation provide for thousands of families in need. Will you join us?

One-off giving

Make a one-off donation to our work

If you would like to make a one-off donation to support a specific area of our work such as feeding children or growing the Hideaway, or simply allow us to use it where it's most needed that would be hugely appreciated. 

Food and resources

Donate food or resources

If you can donate food either as an individual or a business, we commit to using every item donated for those struggling with these most basic living costs. Donations of books, DVDs, Jigsaws and good quality toys are used in our lending libraries whilst digital resources such as tablets and laptops are lent to those who need them locally.


Volunteer your time or expertise

If you have spare time and would like to help out, we have a wide range of voluntary roles from delivering food boxes to helping in the shop, advocacy, cleaning, helping in the cafe, craft with children and many many more.
