Alleviating poverty, bringing hope

COVID-19 Update

The coronavirus pandemic has affected society in many ways, and like most of us, NOAH are having to do things differently. All our charity stores are closed once more due to Tier 4 restrictions, whilst our Academy building closes its door for a week for Christmas (25/12-03/01)  and our Welfare Centre remains open throughout the Christmas period.

We are moving quickly to adapt to the circumstances we find ourselves in once again. Our academy offers a range of training and support online and are working hard to still be allowing face-to-face classes in the Academy during yet another lockdown. Our welfare services continue to support people in severe poverty, not least by ensuring that rough sleepers have something to eat, have shelter, and support. And our retail stores are still operating online on multiple platforms including: Shpock, Gumtree, Shopify, Preloved, Depop, Ebay and Vinted with an ever-growing range of products for sale.

NOAH takes the safety of our clients, staff and volunteers very seriously, and this is especially important during the pandemic. We maintain thorough risk assessments for all of our activities, which evolve as the circumstances change. If you have any questions about this, please contact us.

Coronavirus has disrupted our ability to raise funds for our services, and like most charities we are facing financial hardship. If you are willing and able, we would be very grateful for your support of our Coronavirus Appeal (Click here to donate), which will ensure that NOAH can continue to help people in severe poverty.

Many thanks for your support.

NOAH has been working for more than 30 years to provide support for people who have nowhere else to turn

With our staff team, many volunteers and benefactors, a combination that is dedicated to seeing and helping realise the potential in people, we have come through some tough times to create an organisation that can do some extraordinary things.
