Action Foundation was set up by Julian Prior, a member of City Church, Newcastle upon Tyne, as an expression of his Christian faith and in response to the needs of the local community. Although we are constituted separately, City Church remain strong partners in our work through our many volunteers and the work of our board of trustees.
Beginning in 2007 by housing just one destitute asylum seeker, our work has grown steadily over the years. An ESOL summer school evolved into our now thriving Action Language service and the Lettings, InterAction and Digital Inclusion projects, as well as various awards, were added along the way. Today we support around 1,700 people from at least 76 different countries.
