Together Newcastle About us How we help What we do Get Involved Contact Us How we help TOGETHER Newcastle works with churches, individuals and organisations in a variety of ways to find the best fit locally. We want to help build stronger associations and relationships in communities We focus on: Supporting local churches in mission and community engagement Seeking to create a fairer financial system Help to tackle loneliness and isolation Providing support around funding applications Often, ideas come from a conversation, and then you find you need some help to make them happen! TOGETHER Newcastle works by using an ‘asset based approach’. This means we start by identifying what skills and assets you and your community have and we take it from there. We want to help build stronger associations and relationships in communities; where people have a sense of identity, recognised for what they bring and contribute, and where resources are shared and used for the benefit of all. TOGETHER Newcastle can help by: Working with you to develop your ideas, being a listening ear – a sounding board. Speaking at Churches/organisations or running/leading a discussion group. Developing activities that meet the needs of your community. Helping you to make plans which will make your idea manageable/achievable. Providing training/resources. Having honest conversations about money, or lack of it. Looking for funding and helping you to complete funding applications. Linking people and organisations who want to do similar things. Helping you discover, and use, the gifts and skills in your church and community.
