Who we are
About Hebburn Helps
Hebburn Helps Community Food Bank and Crisis Response Team are a Voluntary Community Organisation that was set up to help local families who are finding it hard and are struggling to make ends meet.
We provide food parcels, adults clothing, kids clothing, baby equipment, toys, household items and more.
Hebburn Helps started in June 2015 and so far has helped individuals and families from our region in their time of need.
We are always looking for donations of food, clothes and anything else that others can use.
We appreciate everything that we receive, no matter how small it is, to us it is a big deal.
How You Can Help
Hebburn Helps solely relies on donations from the general public. We receive no funding from Government and only a handful of our projects are partially supported by the local authority. There are a number of ways in which you can help us:
- Do a food shop for us – as we are a food bank, we are constantly in need of tinned food, items with a long shelf life and toiletries. We even need pet food on occasion!
- Drop items in our collection points in local supermarkets across the area.
- Consider donating your old, good condition clothes and household items.
- Organise a fundraising event.
- Volunteer at our centre or at one of our events.
At the end of the day, we appreciate any and all help we receive. Hebburn Helps can’t continue to help our community without you!

Hebburn Helps Voluteers
Hebburn Helps couldn’t run if it wasn’t for all the amazing volunteers who donate their time to help us. Including handing out emergency food parcels, keeping the food bank in orderly fashion or giving up their time during the school holidays to make sure that no child goes hungry whilst off school thanks to our holiday provisions scheme, they make Hebburn Helps what it is. While the pictures below only show a handful of them, we have many more who work behind the scenes to keep us going.
