Here at Alice charity, we’ve recently noticed a significant increase in the number of lovely, local families needing support with food. We tried to put ourselves in your shoes, being unable to give your children enough food to satisfy their hunger, going without food yourself so the rest of your family can eat, but we can’t even begin to imagine how hard it must be.

So we have set up People’s Pantry to help you to feed your family:

  • You can just turn up for food – you don’t have to be referred into us
  • We are open every day
  • We provide baby products too
  • You will be welcomed by our team with a brew, a chance to sit down and chill whilst we take a few details from you

People’s Pantry is one of many projects run by Alice charity to support local vulnerable families, so not only can we help you with food, but we can also support you to move towards independence with emotional and practical support by our wonderful Family Support team, who have themselves experienced tough times so know exactly what you are going through, no judgement, only respect and kindness. Let us help you – People’s Pantry is open from 11am to 1pm from Monday to Friday, and we are based in Newcastle town centre at 27 Bridge Street, ST5 2RY – call us on 01782 627017 if you need any more details Please come and see us – that’s what we’re here for.

BrandCarers Hub

In the 2011 census approximately 27,000 people in Stoke-On-Trent (11% of the population) identified themselves as providing unpaid care – approximately 800 of these were young carers.

The same census highlighted just under 90,000 people in Staffordshire providing unpaid care, with a further 2,000 young carers.

The hub exists to ensure that all carers are aware of and have access to a wide range of support services designed to ease their caring responsibilities and enjoy what life has to offer outside these.

If you provide regular care to a friend, family member or neighbour in Stoke-On-Trent or Staffordshire you may be eligible to access a wide range of support services to help you in your caring responsibilities as well as in your life outside.

Find out how we can support you with your caring responsibilities and your life outside.

Safer Places 

Safer Places provide a safe temporary place to go if a person with a learning disability or dementia feels distressed, vulnerable or scared while out in the community. 

Places which have joined the scheme can be identified by a Safer Places sticker at the entrance.

People who join the scheme will have a Keep Safe card, which will include the names and contact numbers of two relatives or friends who be called on for help.

They will need to show this card to obtain help in the establishments who have signed up to the scheme.
