The 700 Club has made a difference because it has:

  • Intervened around 300,000 times to prevent an individul sleeping rough or spending the night in an inappropriate location
  • Highlighted the plight, and been an advocate for, the homeless across two decades
  • Brought about a reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour
  • Prevented, by working with partners, the need for anyone to sleep on the street
  • Helped individuals to regain control of their lives to become productive and valued members of the community
  • Contributed significantly to building the local community.

What is said of us:

“The 700 Club has made a real difference to so many people’s lives in Darlington. From small beginnings, it has grown to become a force for good in the town. It deserves all our congratulations for its work” 

Rt Hon Alan Milburn

“The 700 Club has always been good at identifying gaps in supported housing provision and offering innovative solutions. It has grown considerably since it was first established and is now well known throughout Darlington and the surrounding area.”
