Latest statistics state that 17% of all children living in Newcastle-Under-Lyme and 25% of all children living in Stoke-On-Trent reside in low income families. It is widely acknowledged that a childhood spent in poverty adversely impacts education, occupation, income and ill health.
The Alice Charity’s objective is to transform families, empowering those most in need to improve their own circumstances for both this generation and the next in order to create long term sustainability, providing an accessible service that builds confidence, take control and find purpose.
The Charity has both employed staff and volunteers, all supported and encouraged to juggle family and home successfully, building strong role models and developing confidence. The Alice team provides support that is built on kindness, compassion and unconditional love for our communities.
The charity is always looking for donations or if you would like to get involved as a volunteer, particularly if you drive please contact them. There are opportunities to volunteer at the food bank, community café, as fundraisers and many other roles to suit.
