After much waiting and nail-biting anticipation, we’re thrilled to say that we received the keys to our new premises for Basis@Gateshead! Our new homelessness resource centre has moved from Gateshead High Street to Prospect House just a two minute walk away. The building isn’t ready to move into just yet, but with your support we can transform the empty shell into a welcoming space and provide crisis support for those in our community who are rough sleeping and at risk of homelessness.
We’re crowdfunding to make a start at filling the £40,000 funding gap needed for the annual running costs of the project. Despite this funding gap, we’re stepping forward in faith, and crowdfunding for the first £5000 is just the beginning…
We’re so excited for the opportunities this new building will bring; not just a bigger space so we can help more people, but also better facilities including a new IT suite so people can access the internet to search for properties and complete online applications.
You can find out more information on our crowdfunding page, including the specific ways your donation could help those we work with.
Please donate and join in with what we’re doing in Gateshead.
