THE RE STORE is a new social enterprise working under the management of the charity West End Impact. THE RE STORE will specialise in hand-made crafts and art with an ethos of sustainability. Many of the items will therefore be made from re-cycled or eco-friendly materials. We believe in helping people who are struggling to reach their full potential, so this will be an opportunity to help rebuild their lives through creativity.
West End Impact’s INNOVATE art group helps people in recovery, suffering from poor mental health, or those who have lost confidence due to long term joblessness and THE RE STORE will give an opportunity for people to show case and sell their work. It will also give local artists a platform and support the charity at the same time. We intend to create volunteer opportunities in retail, with full mentoring support and training, again helping people into employment.

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
