We're still collecting donations

On the 26th January 2024 we'd raised £1,340 with 7 supporters in 69 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

As prices soar, residents around our Community Centre are sharing stories of struggle to afford basic necessities like food, utilities, and hygiene products.

At RJ4All, we believe that no one should have to choose between eating and heating. That's why we are banding together to provide emergency community support to alleviate poverty, promote physical and mental wellbeing, and celebrate the positive contributions that we all make to the area.

Why does RJ4All need your help? 

RJ4All is a non-profit, charitable organisation that relies on sponsors and donations to deliver services to achieve our goal of improving mental and physical wellbeing, addressing poverty, and redistributing power to build the world's first Restorative Justice Postcode. As this crisis continues, we will need to expand the services that we provide. We cannot do that without support from donors like you!

As we combat the cost of living crisis, we are celebrating and encouraging the positive contributions that local residents make! We are doing this through three initiatives.

  • Keeping active: Expanding our offering of accessible sports and fitness classes so that people of all abilities can stay active through winter!
  • Staying positive: We are cultivating spaces for vulnerable residents to participate in wellbeing circles to connect with neighbours and provide peer support!
  • Celebrating success: We are launching a series of community-based certificates and awards for young people and community champions to publicly support their initiatives!

Help us to provide these essential services to beat the cost-of-living crisis!

  • Creating welcoming, warm spaces during the cold winter months for residents to thaw-out, have a cuppa, and connect with neighbours in a healthy and comfortable environment
  • Providing access to the basic essentials through our Hygiene Bank and Charity Shop to provide more low-cost supplies
  • Engaging youth in sport by providing sports sessions in tennis, football, and basketball to build their resilience during difficult times
  • Nourishing our community by ensuring our food bank and community fridges are fully stocked and accessible
  • Teaching cost-saving skills and increasing financial independence through our Mending Club and Growing Club. Participants can learn creative ways to extend the life of their wardrobes and grow food to improve their mental and physical health
  • Bridging the digital divide by providing people access to wifi, data, and shared community technology devices

How will we spend the money raised?

We'll use the funds to cover the cost of new equipment, volunteering costs, training, essential supplies, nutritious food, warm spaces, community events, and H&S checks. 

We hope you'll join us in supporting our local community through the cost of living crisis. Together, we can provide vulnerable populations relief, and accomplish our goal of restoring justice.
