JESUS CARES

what we do

Jesus Cares works within some of the most deprived communities in South Wales to provide practical support to families living in poverty and deprivation.

In fact 84 of the areas that we work within are in the top 150 most deprived areas in Wales.

We supply provisions to a partner network comprising of over 200 community and social care agencies, where professional expertise is utilised to distribute help to the most vulnerable in our communities.

Jesus Cares would not be able to operate without the time and dedication given by volunteers in helping to pack and prepare food and other essential provisions for delivery.

There are always lots of opportunities to get involved in helping out throughout the week, so if you have a few hours spare, either in the day or the evening we'd love to see you. To find out more about what volunteer opportunities are available in the next while, click here.

how we do it

From our warehouse in Newport, we receive articulated lorries of food/supplies which we then prepare and package ready to be delivered to our partner organisations.

 

We receive 100's of tonnes of surplus products each year from multi national suppliers / manufacturers / retailers  plus  we distribute donations from local businesses and members of the public. Through the redistribution of surplus or unwanted products the project is a positive alternative to landfill and external recycling by helping national companies/ public reduce their negative environmental impact. 

Jesus Cares is a Big Lottery Funded project, and this support has enabled us to expand our work throughout South Wales.

 

If you'd like to help out, get involved, or find out more, we'd love to hear from you!
