A Splash Of Colour For West End Impact

Have you seen our new front? We're really happy with the mural created by Shane Johnstone thanks to the Dulux Let’s Colour project. We really love the new front for our building and think it gives a great opportunity for anyone passing to see exactly what we're about and what we offer.

Artist, Shane Johnstone, with trustee, Emma Hamilton, and other volunteers and clients of the community centre.
The paint was kindly donated by the local Dulux Decorator Centre on Croft Street, as part of the Let’s Colour mission to add colour to people’s lives thanks to Emma who nominated the project online!

Peter Gardner, Dulux Decorator Centre store manager, said: “We really like how West End Impact’s mural serves two different purposes – educating local people about how they can help while making the streets a more colourful place to be.


“The local artist has been really creative with the paint Dulux donated and we hope the mural brightens people’s day in Morecambe.”

Welcome!

In 2002 West End Impact started its journey of Helping People, Bringing Hope and Changing Lives!! We opened in response to the regeneration of Morecambe which was a government focus at that time; Regeneration starts with people and although the new prom in Morecambe is amazing there are still lots of people in great need and lots to be done.
We opened our doors to everyone and our services have been tailored to the needs of the Community. There are now 12 different projects or sessions running from our multi purpose building!!

At West End Impact we support people through crisis, help them repair reasons for their crisis and assist them in moving on. We work with people who are homeless, jobless and hopeless – people who have lost their home, their job and/or hope.
As a Christian Charity we believe God’s love for people is all inclusive, relevant for the whole human being.
For some the Good News of Jesus is a challenging word in season or a great sermon; for others it is a hot bowl of soup, housing advice and a dry sleeping bag.
We are thankful that God has us spread his love in both ways.
Often people take 3 steps forwards, 5 backwards and 8 sideways but we pray they find new hope in themselves, through us and in God.
