West End Impact is a registered charity (reg. Charity number: 1153736) run in partnership with Morecambe Community Church and other Christians in response to the regeneration of Morecambe.

What's On At Impact

Now that we're back from our holidays things at West End Impact are back in full swing! Here's a look at some of the sessions we have running at the moment!

Living Life To The Full

Living life to the full is a 9 week CBT based course, that helps with low mood and depression. Many people have improved their thinking and changed their life through this simple course. Don't worry, once the course starts it is a closed group, to protect confidentiality and trust. We run the course every 10 weeks approx so get in touch about the next one!

Innovate

Innovate Art group meets every week at Impact. Whether you are a professional a novice or someone who would like to have a go - This group is for you. It is a free group although donations for art materials are welcome. It runs from 12.30-2.30 term time only. We can provide teaching on all styles of art and design. We work on personal projects as well as getting involved in art based in the local community.

Boogie Babies

Boogie Babies is a preschool stay and play session. We have been running for 7 years in the area.
We provide a bright open space with toys and a chance for parents and carers to talk. We play from 10-11am and then have singing and story time from 11.30am. Afterwards we often have lunch in our community cafe upstairs.

For more information on any of these or anything at Impact that you would like to get involved with contact Emma Hamilton - 07733203235 or info@mcc.uk.com

We hope to see you at something soon!

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.

in 2015...
...over 400 individuals collectively received help 5573 times
...over 35 people received intense support for their depression & anxiety
...over 450 foodparcels gave people 3 days of food when they had absolutely nothing
...60 times we helped people find a home or keep their tenancy
...13 vulnerable adults went to crucial appointments because we went with them
...38 people and families could switch their lights on and heat their home
