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 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
