About

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. 

Will you support us to meet our fundraising target?
