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.

The Barn

At the end of 2009 we signed the contract on the lease of "The Barn". The Barn is at 4 - 10 Heysham Road, next to the former Battery Pub.
Over the course of the next few years, after many complications, West End Impact purchased the whole complex. This includes the former call centre and the barn behind it.
In 2011 work began on the former call centre. Over the summer this building was transformed into a fantastic, open conference centre which is available for hire, and also accommodates Morecambe Community Church who meet in the centre on a sunday morning
Moving into 2012, all planning permission has been accepted and the renovation work really started!
Finally in March 2013 the work was completed(ish).

Through major funding from ASDA, Trusthouse, Francis C Scott Trust, Take Pride Community Foundation and countless volunteer hours we managed to transform the derelict buildings into a space for the community to enjoy and further our objectives.

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.
