Crisis call handling takes patience, professionalism and dedication - Jacqui is the reassuring voice on the end of our phone 3 days a week

Slide

Fadi volunteers 4 mornings a week - we value his significant contribution and rich experience. His language skills - translating for other people seeking asylum who use our service - are a welcome added bonus

Slide

Lorna volunteers 2 days a week - she's a key member of the team providing emergency food and support to those in crisis in South Tyneside

Slide

Andrew volunteers for us 2-3 days a week - our volunteer drivers provide a lifeline to those who are elderly, isolated or perhaps have mobility or health issues, who may otherwise face difficulty travelling to collect their emergency food parcel

Slide

Our volunteers are from all walks of life and we're fortunate to benefit from their wide-ranging professional expertise - Adrienne usually volunteers 2 mornings a week but has done many more hours during the pandemic

The coronavirus outbreak has left us desperate for donations with demand only increasing as the crisis continues

You can drop-off urgently needed food donations to Boldon Lane Library. Or our supermarket donation points; OR, if you’re in a position to, you can make a financial donation via the KEY Project’s website (See link below) – all donations will go directly to the foodbank  – unless you specify your donation is intended for the provision of services for young people at KEY. We are now distributing Family Food Packs with sufficient food for a family one week. We’re so incredibly grateful for our community’s support – thank you

Excited to see progress on our food bus 🚌 project. South Shields MP Emma Lewell-Buck, Feeding Britain and Key2Life have been working on this for a long time. The team visited Stagecoach Shields depot to see it at last. Big thanks to Gary for donating it.

School Uniforms 4 All

If you would like to drop donations off at the Foodbank – come around the back of the building. Knock on the red door and then wait and the bottom of the ramp. A Foodbank volunteer will come and open the door.

In July, we ask parents to donate school uniforms that their children have out-grown and also school bags, shoes and other items. Our volunteers wash and iron them and then they are sorted in ages and individual schools. 

In August, parents are invited to come and choose items for their children. Uniforms are available all year round at KEY 2 Life and for families new to South Tyneside , asylum seeker and traveller families. In 2018-19, 300 families benefitted.
