The 700 Club have provided nearly 400,000 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.
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.
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.
To give or not to give? The sight of someone begging awakens compassion, but giving the person money is not the solution to their need. Help by text instead. Text BEGGING to 70085 and a default donation of £5 will be made. Alternatively, text BEGGING followed by any number between 1 and 20 and donate that amount.
In 2021 the 700 Club celebrates its Silver Jubilee. From the hastily erected mock doorway on High Row in Darlington, and the generous 700 who gave £50 towards opening a first hostel, the organisation has gone on to deliver nearly 400,000 bed-nights. What would a donation from you look like in 25 years?
Make a donation to our Move-on project
In November 2020, 32 supported, self-contained, one bedroom flats will become available in which individuals will develop the skills and build the confidence to live independently. Please support us with a donation. A gift of £7 will equip a flat with cutlery, £300 will provide a bed, mattress and bedding, and £4000 will fully equip a single flat. Whatever you feel able to give, you are helping an individual to move on in their life.
