Ethos and Values

Action Foundation is a charity with a compelling vision to empower vulnerable asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in overcoming exclusion and poverty.  We do this by creating opportunities for them to lead safe, independent, and fulfilled lives. Our services are made available regardless of our clients’ ethnicity, beliefs or background.

The charity was founded in 2005 by City Church, Newcastle upon Tyne, as an expression of Christian faith which leads to helping the poor and marginalised.   Action Foundation is strongly supported by City Church along with many other churches, trusts, organisations, and individuals. Our growth and development to date has been facilitated by building partnership with those who share our vision.

Action Foundation seeks to demonstrate in practical ways the Christian values of love for the poor by providing practical support which gives real hope for the future, and by doing everything with the desire to serve. We work with organisations and individuals who share our commitment to these values.
