Homeless, dependent on drugs or alcohol, suffering with a mental health issue - we believe people are more than a label. We work in Darlington to help to people regain control of their lives and to have a home of their own.

Why it matters?

We believe that people are greater than the issues by which society often defines them - homeless, drug addict, alcoholic, suffering mental illness. We feel that we can make a difference by believing in people when they do not believe in themselves.



Our Achievements

The 700 Club have provided approximately 300,000 bed-nights to those who would otherwise be forced to sleep rough, to sleep on a friend's floor, or to occupy some other kind of inappropriate accommodation.

What we do

The 700 Club offers a range of services to those who are homeless or inappropriately housed to help them as individuals overcome the barriers to living independently and to settle in a home of their choosing.



Homelessness Prevention Trailblazer Success

After a successful partnership bid to the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) with Darlington Borough Council and Darlington CAB, the 700 Club will will be launching an Early Intervention Outreach Project focused on helping individuals address problems that, left unaddressed, could ultimately lead to the loss of somewhere to live.
