Compassion Belfast

Climate for Change - 27th to 29th October 2022

We all like giving and helping others, so we have partnered with the charity Compassion Belfast (http:/compassionbelfast.org) to leave a Conference legacy.  Compassion Belfast aims to relieve poverty, advance community development, improve social welfare and offer relief to those in need regardless of age, race, gender and political or religious opinion.

So, what have we got to do? They would be grateful for donations of toiletries for both men and women (especially deodorant, shampoo and shower gel).  They would also be pleased to have sanitary items, socks and underwear (both new of course).  Look on the Conference website to see if other items are required.

The charity will have dump bins to receive your donations and banners in the ICC foyer on Saturday of Conference.  Don’t worry if you are only bringing hand luggage as there is a chemist about 500 metres from the ICC to buy toiletries.  But they will gladly accept money donations so that they can buy what is needed.

Compassion Belfast fulfils its aims through:

The Living Room: a relaxing café-style space where those who are facing social or economic poverty are welcomed, to receive compassionate and practical support.

Fun In A Box: free street parties for families, running in the summer months, throughout socially deprived areas of Belfast.

Compassion Walks: an outreach providing practical help to rough sleepers and the homeless community in Belfast.

New To You: charity shop providing donated clothing and furniture to those in need known to us through The Living Room and Compassion Walks. The shop also generates funds through the sale of donated items.

Base Project: a project studio and creative facility equipping people to tell their story through arts and media, providing formal music education to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity.

Side By Side: group events and activities for individuals experiencing the poverty of loneliness and social exclusion.

The Tool Box: a space where men pursue practical interests, learn and share skills, gain a sense of achievement and enjoy social interaction.

Project Christmas Box: Christmas gifts and food hampers are given annually to assist households struggling with financial hardship.

Let’s see what we can do.
