The Mercy Project Registered Office Address: St Mary's Cathedral. Clayton St West, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 5HH. Registered Charity No. 1178446

A MESSAGE FROM JOE KIRWIN, Cathedral Outreach Coordinator
We are still looking for more volunteers and anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Just a quick reminder that our first two projects are:
Dementia Café - These sessions are for people with dementia and their carers to meet others in the same situation and to enjoy activities, such as, singing, dancing, crafts, quizzes, etc.
Mercy On the Move - Supporting homeless and vulnerable adults to attend appointments, fill out forms and access services.
Looking ahead, we may also require volunteers with appropriate skills to assist with some other general duties. People who are happy to just lend a listening ear or make a really good cup of tea would prove invaluable.
If you would like more information about how to help with our projects and make a difference please send us a message .
Telephone: 07904881430 or email


Your used postage stamps make a difference to those charities who collect them. In support of their efforts we are asking our Cathedral community to please bring any stamps you may have in to the Cathedral office. Thank you!

Who we are:

We are a new project based in St Mary's Cathedral that is working to end suffering, loneliness and distress in Newcastle and beyond.

What we do:

We support the homeless, the lonely, the young and anyone in need. We do this by supporting people to access services, provide advice, offer opportunities to meet new people and learn new skills. Only through the support of volunteers who share their time, skills and knowledge can we make a difference to people's lives
