Real Deal Plus win Newcastle Building Society’s Cornerstone Award at Linden Hall

alteration. The building is now fully operational  and provides vital help and support  to some of the most vulnerable people in the surrounding area.

We have huge numbers of people  using our services every week and these numbers continue to increase week on week as more people become affected by the current economic climate.  Our facilities and services are being used by people of all ages from school children to pensioners.  We are providing food and hot drinks to some of the community’s most vulnerable people, especially those suffering from financial and fuel poverty.  We provide alcohol, drug and relationship counselling and supply furniture, clothing and food parcels to those desperately in need as well as packs of essential items for those who are homeless.

Our facility allows local members of the community a warm place of care and refuge, a listening ear, companionship and direct practical help. The Real Deal team have also visited several schools during the past year, speaking to hundreds of school children and warning of the dangers of alcohol, drugs and gang culture. We currently receive referrals from Ex-Offenders organisations such as ‘Reflex’ and Prison Fellowship to help and resettle ex prisoners.  We hope to be able to offer training and job opportunities as well as qualifications linked to our market gardening & furniture restoration projects which are now well underway.  Our Job Club provides help with Job Search, CV writing and interview preparation.
