Support and Grow North East
Support and Grow North East opened its doors in response to growing poverty in the area.
The charity is 50 trained and supported volunteers. Powered by local women, they are helping each other find pathways out of hardship and offer a breadth of holistic support. From providing donated food and meals, to nappies and hygiene products, the charity also offers workshops sessions, advocacy, and housing help to over 5,000 people.
Our grant of £30,000 will help them move their senior leader from volunteering to a full-time paid role, so they can explore revenue-generating opportunities such as an onsite café.
