(Turning to One Another – Margaret Wheatley)
TOGETHER Newcastle recognises that some individuals and communities are under extreme pressure due, in part, to the current economic climate. We recognise that poverty will look and feel different depending on the situation/location, especially in a Diocese where we have a mix of rural, urban and coastal communities. However, we believe we can build on existing assets and strategies used by communities and people living in poverty to support themselves.

“I don’t really know where I would have begun without Together Newcastle."
