The Places Foundation, Living+ and the Travis Perkins Legacy Fund have collaborated to help support Hebburn Helps in South Tyneside, Tyne and Wear.

Started in June 2015, Hebburn Helps Community Food Bank and Crisis Response Team are a voluntary community organisation that was set up to help local families who are finding it hard and are struggling to make ends meet. The project was nominated for funding by the North East Living+ team as it has supported many of our vulnerable customers in the past.

Thanks to a £1250 donation from Places Foundation Hebburn Helps were able to support 200 people per week for approximately 5 weeks, with the donation going towards toiletries, food parcels and provision of packed lunch on a daily basis to children of low income families.
