Our Charity History
Hospitality and Hope are one of South Tyneside’s leading food insecurity, homelessness and community wellbeing charities.
We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) governed by a Board of Trustees who bring extensive experience and significant influence on our work. Our Chief Executive Officer, staff and volunteers work tirelessly, every day, to bring positive change for a community who are living in one of the most deprived areas in England.
Our work is focussed on prevention, supporting our community to develop the skills, experience and social capital needed to live their life, with an increased sense of hope for a positive and self-reliant future.
People sit at the heart of our work; our extensive insights and engagement work means that we truly understand the needs of our community and what will work best to bring positive change. We also bring their lived experience to our conversations with others to inform local policy making.
Collaboration, partnership working and our commitment to evidence-based practice are the cornerstones of our work.
