ABOUT US

We are a local community group with the primary aim of reaching out to help people who are most in need. We receive food surplus from supermarkets within the area and provide for people and families who are going through financial difficulties and struggles within our community. Our work is making a real impact in people's lives and offers valuable support where it is needed most by ensuring people have food at their table. I believe that through the simple act of giving we can overcome many problems we can face in life whilst helping others in our neighbourhood through difficult times.

SPRINGWATER CHARITY GROUP

If people you feel lonely, need someone to talk to, or need help getting access to food and medicine. If we cannot help with other things, we will signpost to different organisations or help find someone who can. Ways to keep calm, help mental health, ease stress and cope with loneliness. When the Covid-19 crisis hit the Uk,Springwater recognised the necessity of an immediate and well-coordinated action. We spoke with our members and Christian charities, organisations and representative/umbrella groups and decided that now was the time for collective and unified action.

We have joined hands to provide a collective response. Fundraising money and raise funds to support families and individuals in need of assistance, particularly those facing financial difficulties, as well as helping community organisations with the resources and support necessary in order to help them more effectively coordinate their local responses and assist the most vulnerable in their areas.

Mental health charities have been drawing attention to these issues and calling for support. Many sufferers rely on support mechanisms, centres and activities that are no longer available. The duration of the lockdown being unknown will only deepen the stress and anxiety so as Springwater Community group we would signpost those people to relevant organisations
