Last year we supported over 3,500 people with complex advocacy support.                   

But we know that there are thousands more individuals that need us.

Your support can make a real difference!

These are the faces of the people that need your help!

Are you a business looking for a new nominated charity?

We would be very happy to talk to you about becoming your nominated charity, either for a 'one-off' fundraising campaign or to become your 'charity of the year.'

There are plenty of examples of how we help people in the North West on our website, (click here to read our recent success stories) but we can explain more at face to face meeting. We can discuss more about the work that we do and how with your help, we could extend the reach of our free of charge services, so that no-one fall’s through the gaps in the stretched social services. We offer a tailored support package in return for your help, which can benefit your staff and business, whilst supporting the local community.
