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.

Donations


Since its start in October 2002 West End Impact has been a registered charity.
It is mainly funded by voluntary contribution from members of MCC and other local Christians. We have gratefully received funding from organisations such as Francis Scott Trust, Grassroots, Tudor Trust, Galbraith Trust and LLoyds TSB, Awards for all, Lancashire County Council, Church Urban Fund and others.



West End Impact Angels support our work financially. Without their faithful and continuous support our work just would not be possible. That is why we lovingly and affectionately call them 'our angels'. If you would like to become one of our angels and contribute to this import community impact 'outpost' in the West End of Morecambe, please get in touch or use the details below.

If you are a taxpayer we can use Gift Aid to make your donation go a little further still, please email us at wei@mcc.uk.com.

There is a totally free (money and hassle) way to raise extra funds for a great cause (West End Impact). See how and join in.

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.
