To provide a safe place for children under 5 to play and to help families interact and socialise with their kids after 2 lockdowns.

I started LIFT 4 years ago as many families, particularly large families and working families had no where to access for emotional support. Barrier such as homelessness, in work poverty and unemployment where increasing and support services decreasing. We have been working in crises since we started even though the aim was to work in prevention, sadly COVID came and we had to adapt our services to meet the needs of 100's off families in the community and living in homeless to help with food and in work poverty. We provided 6000 food parcels, 300 Christmas hampers, 22,000 packed lunches, 3000 ready meals all in one year.

None of the services we adapted where funded we had to depend on donations and kindness from our partners.

All we want to do is provide a safe community centre with a one stop shop for people to come in and feel safe regardless of their circumstances.
