Whitley Bay Big Local’s theme “People and Wellbeing” develops projects and partnerships to support more vulnerable and / or isolated members of our community, improving people's day-to-day lives and working with services that can provide longer term interventions. We have developed a range of activities that bring people together at informal drop-ins. It’s about kindness, taking time to listen to others and making connections in the local community. These sessions aim to be inclusive and welcoming to all parts of the community and wherever possible the sessions are volunteer led. Find out more on our FaceBook page


Supporting Vulnerable Residents Funding – over the last 3 years we have supported local organisations by offering funding to support local people that need additional support, especially around Christmas time. Additionally, we have worked with a large number of local rough sleepers and those in temporary and/or hostel-style accommodation – offering basic signposting and advice but more importantly a space for them to feel welcome, to get a bite to eat and a warm drink with an accompanying chat to one of our volunteers.
