News Gateshead Community Organisation- video tour confirmed for May

We're pleased to confirm that the Gateshead Community Organisation will be joining our monthly call on Thursday 27th May to share a video tour at the start of our food based spectacular.

The Gateshead Community Organisation started in 2018 by accident, the founding director found that the work her limited company was doing had many social benefits. With lots of research and the help of two other enlisted directors the organisation started trading as a cafe in a under utilised council building. The cafe was started to provide realistic work placements to learners on a supported internship from a local college. However the cafe was too quiet to give these learners a good experience. This inspired us to start a hot meal delivery service to local pensioners. This way the learners had an 11.30am deadline each day to have 8 -10 nutritious meals prepared from scratch. Since then and as a reaction to Covid we adapted and used our network of volunteers to help distribute over 2000 food parcels and hot meals to the local community in the past twelve months. Moving forward we plan to help improve outcomes for the local community, through food sharing, workshops and our community garden. We are evolving into an organisation which is responsive to the needs of the local community and proactively seek innovative solutions to local social issues.
