Motivated by our Christian faith, Compassion Belfast aims to relieve poverty, advance community development, improve social welfare and offer relief to those in need regardless of age, race, gender and political or religious opinion.
Compassion Belfast fulfils its aims through:
The Living Room: a relaxing café-style space where those who are facing social or economic poverty are welcomed, to receive compassionate and practical support.
Fun In A Box: free street parties for families, running in the summer months, throughout socially deprived areas of Belfast.
Compassion Walks: an outreach providing practical help to rough sleepers and the homeless community in Belfast.
New To You: charity shop providing donated clothing and furniture to those in need known to us through The Living Room and Compassion Walks. The shop also generates funds through the sale of donated items.
Base Project: a project studio and creative facility equipping people to tell their story through arts and media, providing formal music education to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity.
Side By Side: group events and activities for individuals experiencing the poverty of loneliness and social exclusion.
The Tool Box: a space where men pursue practical interests, learn and share skills, gain a sense of achievement and enjoy social interaction.
Project Christmas Box: Christmas gifts and food hampers are given annually to assist households struggling with financial hardship.
