We run at present a non funded non-profit orgaisation which over the last 6 - 7months has grown rapidly with the demand offering a whole host of free service's to help families and people in real genuine hardship.
We are currently desperately fundraising for our new self-reliant community unit so we can go back to holding the group sessions and work with children and parents and all the many plans before losing our lease to a new newsagents at our previous unit.
unfortunately some of the services and group sessions have been put on hold along with our plans for the first quarter of 2013 until we have found a new premises to run our services from.

Since falling ill last year Iv been wanting to put my energy into a new group dedicated to helping families/couples/single people that may need a little help due to any given situation.
Since we began at the end of June 2012 we have seen the organisation grow and grow and have managed to reach many families in and around Thanet with all sorts of help and support, donations and also one on one support offering advice, guidance, internet access, help understanding and filling out forms, referrals and much more. We have a group page on Facebook for people to use as a forum for advice from people in similar situations and a like page. We have held a soup kitchen in Ramsgate and also hand out regular food parcels to those in server hardship.
We have the use of Dizzy Spells in Margate 1 or 2 day a week at present as our previous premises we had with no rates as the lease ran out and we are trying to relocate in the same area as that is where the need is greater. We also do home visits where possible. All of this has been done so far by donations but as the demand has grown we have put together a committee board to make a non-profit organisation. This is to make sure all the services we provide are not affected by the growth, organise fundraising and also look at bring new services in to help the people of Thanet where possible.

Our costs are soaring with the massive growth, Premise's and transport are our main costs.
We are 100% non-funded and at this time we are yet to receiving funding for help.
