We want to bring people together from local neighbourhoods, uniting them with the resources and passion of local churches and other organisations – for projects and interventions, which achieve real enhancements in the social wellbeing of families and individuals.
We want to see an end to poverty, hunger and the need for Foodbanks, in Southport and nationally.
In 2022 we launched our new strategy, called ‘going upstream’.
This is based on the premise that we need to catch people before they fall rather than just helping them after the fact. As a poverty reduction charity, we know that it is essential to support those in need, but more importantly we also need to find the root the causes of their problems and what led them to the position of needing such support, then put measures in place to prevent this.
Our 5 year strategy lays out the details of how we intend to work in a more preventative way; catching people before they reach crisis point and need emergency interventions such as Foodbank support.
We are consulting on what we do, why we do it and how we can improve. This is so that we can begin to draw up our next Strategic Framework. Please do get involved, your opinion really does count!
“There comes a time when we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.”
