Established in 2012, Walsall Outreach is a volunteer-led community project that works to help the most vulnerable and isolated people in our town.
We provide free, high-quality food parcels to homeless, elderly and socially disadvantaged individuals living in Walsall and the surrounding areas, supporting people of all ages and social backgrounds.
By ensuring they can enjoy a nutritious meal and a little bit of friendly company, we believe we can make an important and impactful difference in people’s lives and give hope that things can and will be better.
Walsall Outreach is a independent, non-for-profit community project that works closely with Walsall Council and fellow charities and social enterprises based within the borough.
Our current provision is as follows:
Preparing food parcels distributed to individuals and families in need or in isolation.
Providing 60 fish and chip suppers to families and individuals in need.
Delivering 15+ hot lunches to elderly and vulnerable residents.
Distributing clothing and toiletries to those in need and supporting vulnerable groups including refugees and children.
Our fantastic core team of volunteers oversee the running of the project.
