TOGETHER Newcastle is part of a national network developed by Church Urban Fund to help create sustainable and more effective solutions to tackling poverty in England; and in order to do this work between the Tyne and Tweed the Diocese of Newcastle and the Church Urban Fund have formed the TOGETHER Newcastle partnership.
Poverty is not a lifestyle Choice
We believe that poverty is more than an issue of wealth. We recognise that poverty reaches wider and affects individuals and communities in terms of
Poverty can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or ethnicity.
Those trapped in the ‘web of poverty’ are there for many reasons.
- Local jobs may be non-existent or inaccessible.
- A history of domestic violence.
- Poor educational opportunities and experiences.
- Lack of confidence to manage personal finances.
- A downward spiral of debt, with escape feeling impossible.
- Physical and mental health problems, and issues including addiction and isolation.
