“Joe McCorriston is a folk/punk influenced pop Singer-Songwriter from Morecambe, Lancashire, UK. He already has 3 albums to his name as well as many compilations and EP's. 2011’s EP “One Day” and 2012’s LP “Try As You Might”, 2014's "Sick & Sand" are releases that symbolize Joe’s formative years, all released as a teenager. The latest album "The Party We Came For", was released on 16th December 2016, receiving many positive media reviews and the album launch show sold out weeks in advance. Joe continued to tour “The Party We Came For” through 145 shows in 11 different countries throughout 2017.

His musical influences range from Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan & Bruce Springsteen, to NOFX, Green Day & McFly, and these influences have been honed through Joe’s creative machine to make a sound unique enough to stand out, but catchy enough to leave you with the melodies in your head after one listen. Joe is a workaholic, and is on tour more than he is at home, as he gigs endlessly around the UK & Europe building a following one-by-one.

New EP “Existence. Familiarity” was released on 25th January 2018 to coincide with the start of another year of graft & touring. Joe toured the UK with Coffee House Sessions in January, before heading to Scandinavia for a tour throughout February. In March, he will endure a 3 week tour of Germany, before coming home in April for another full UK tour, covering every inch of the country.

Joe has played 650 shows as of December 2017, and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Despite just being armed with an acoustic guitar, his live show is full of energy, passion and creativity to make you turn your head.”

Welcome!

In 2002 West End Impact started its journey of Reacting to Crisis and Rebuiding Lives!! We opened in response to the regeneration of Morecambe which was a government focus at the time.

Regeneration starts with people and although the new prom in Morecambe is amazing an the future plans of the 'Eden Project' will be amazing, there are still lots of people in need in this current economic climate.

In 2002 we saw the great need and although some of our services have change to adapt to different needs, still over 550 people were helped at West End Impact last year!

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.

The motivation of all that we do at IMPACT is our Faith, Hope and Love and we hope we can continue to inspire this in every single person we come into contact with. This could be someone in need or one of the many agencies, schools and organisations we network and rub shoulders with in the area of Morecambe & Lancaster
