Storehouse NI Welcomes Ben Brogan of Lloyds Banking Group

The Halifax Foundation NI welcomed Ben Brogan, Group Director of Lloyds Banking Group Public Affairs and facilitated a visit to Storehouse NI, to experience first-hand the valuable work they do.

 

Launched in 2008, Storehouse (NI) had a very simple aim; to combat food poverty throughout the Greater Belfast area, working towards a day when no one in the city should have to go hungry.  Since then the focus has broadened to encompass other basic needs such as clothes, furniture, and household goods.

 

Storehouse partner with over 35 different churches, as well as over 15 local schools and businesses who all collect and donate food, furniture and clothing, and also give their time and money, so that they can provide our service freely.

 

Storehouse partner with over 160 charities, agencies and statutory bodies, covering every demographic of poverty in every geographical area of Belfast, to ensure that short term, emergency aid is supporting long term plans for change. The desire is never to create dependency or to perpetuate poor lifestyle choices, but to create a window for change.

 

When poverty of any type sets in, one of the first things to be affected is an individual’s dignity. Storehouse see the unique significance in every life, regardless of circumstances, and so strive to see service users empowered through the restoration of dignity.

 

Last year Storehouse NI received £6,000 from the Community Grant Programme towards a van used for collecting furniture from the public, delivering furniture items to clients, collecting food donations and transporting goods from the warehouse to Storehouse Centre.
