Action Foundation is an award-winning charity based in Newcastle upon
Tyne. Through our free English language school and supported housing
projects we support refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants
experiencing isolation in Tyne and Wear and provide opportunities to help them
overcome their exclusion. We empower the people we support to: avoid homelessness,
integrate into the local community, develop skills, gain employment, increase
independence and confidence as well as overcome their isolation.
This year we have 12 amazing runners who will be taking on the Great North Run in September. All money raised will allow us to continue and strengthen our support for vulnerable refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants.
The fundraising team:Curtis Irvine. Jack McCann . Emma Johnston. Maria Figueira. Jane Pollinger. Abbie Rai. Joe Thorpe. Kate Townsend. Carlos Rosales. Francesca Speed. Helen Joyce. Lewis Williams.
