WHAT WE DO
We help the communities of the former district of Easington which is made up 20 distinct areas, most of which are former Pit villages that continue to be hugely affected by deprivation following the closure of the Pits. We run a wide range of projects to help the community fight disadvantage including food parcels, telephone befriending for the socially isolated, helping people in the downward spiral of debt, supporting people to get the benefits they deserve, helping people get into employment, providing holiday activities with food, getting the disengaged engaged with the arts, support for single parents, arts on prescription, community loans and SO MUCH MORE!
