Transforming lives together

We exist to make disciples of every people group in partnership with Churches and other agencies by demonstrating God’s love and bringing hope

We are a Christian charity, founded in 1989 initially as a debt advice service and were the first food bank nationwide.  We now offer many services for people in crisis like our homeless nightshelter and for people in the community, like our Street Pastor programme.
