We work with the local authorities and agencies who refer people in need to us.

We offer either an individual parcel or family parcels for up to 3 days at a time.

For details how to apply for a parcel or how to help please contact us on 01335 661237 or email here

We have donation points across Ashbourne at the following locations:

As well as reaching out to our local community we also help with projects around the world. 

We do this by financially supporting those called into a life of Christian missions and specific Christian organisations that operate around the world.
