Our Vision at Hospitality & Hope is:- 'The community of South Tyneside will be able to live without the stigma of disadvantage and inequality, with an increased sense of hope for a positive and self reliant future.'
Each day we see first hand how a lack of 'Hope' through difficult circumstances, whatever they may be, can affect a person's outlook and their future. Through access to our services, we look to respond to the crisis that each person is facing in a practical way, through our mission to deliver crisis relief and long-term support to individuals and families in our community. Through our foodbank, wellbeing programmes and supported housing, we offer practical help to people affected with food poverty related issues such as debt, benefits, addiction,homelessness, employability and mental health.
Our Values, which are woven into the fabric of everything we do and drive our strategy and our activities are:-
Compassion - We work with care, understanding and a compelling desire to support vulnerable people.
Integrity - We work with transparency and ensure that our decisions are ethical and morally sound.
Inclusivity - We are inclusive by design, ensuring that our service is accessible to all in our community.
