In our
own words

The Comfrey Project: The Comfrey Project works with refugees and asylum seekers on allotment sites across Newcastle and Gateshead with the aim of improving their conditions of life and general wellbeing

Lockdown Gazette: A newspaper for the digitally excluded of Newcastle and Gateshead.

Shieldfield Forum Community Café: As a team of volunteers we are a very small, but we have found our own way … and gradually built ourselves up step by step.

Newcastle Food Cooperative: There are lots of people who are doing cool things who all share these values and they work hard on their individual projects, but they don’t often step back and get a view of the broader landscape. The knowledge across the map is an asset.
