Vineyard Compassion is a Coleraine based charity that brings together an established range of community based projects that offer a holistic approach to tackling poverty and its underlying root causes.
Our mission is ‘to provide people with practical and emotional support at their point of need while empowering them to tackle the underlying root causes’. A key focus is always on the person and not just simply their ‘problem’, as we seek to restore dignity and revive hope. Another priority is to empower people to move from dependence to independence, where we don’t simply give a ‘hand out’ but a ‘hand up’.
Vineyard Compassion currently delivers over 620 interventions to individuals and families each month and during 2013 over 390 volunteers were involved in organising and delivering this support. The 22 different projects are overseen and managed by 6 full-time and 4 part-time staff members. These projects include a Foodbank, Clothing Bank, Debt Counselling, Job Club, Supported Volunteering work programme, Life Skills course, Recovery Support Group, Supported Housing, Drop In Centre, Allotment… and more.
