Paying It Forward

Who we are

We are the Northumbria branch of Helping Our Homeless. Set up as Paying It Forward, we joined Helping Our Homeless in February 2019. Since then, we have gone on to take part in collaborative events, fundraisers and projects with the Newcastle Helping Our Homeless team.



Mats Along The Tyne, in collaboration with Northumrbria Enactus. This is where we are making sleeping mats for the homeless out of old carrier bags donated by students and businesses.
