Happy Planet are supporting ‘North East Homeless’ as our charity of the year 2019
Information about North East Homeless:
The prevention or relief of poverty anywhere in the North of England by providing or assisting in the provision of material items such as food or clothing (but not exclusively), and Outreach practical support to vulnerable individuals, to enable them to improve their lifestyles and be self-sufficient, to show empathy and sympathy to such vulnerable people so they feel valued.
North East Homeless began as a Charity in November 2016, founded by Brian Burridge, who was frustrated by the lack of practical services offered to those he saw whilst volunteering himself.
Since then, North East Homeless (NEH), has a strong reliable volunteering group who commit to helping out with the 3 weekly Outreach sessions.
We currently provide food, friendship and signposting during our Outreach sessions and offer ongoing support to those who engage with our service.
