The good news story of Pathway across Great Yarmouth and Gorleston
Building community and loving our neighbour is at the heart of what we do. An independent registered charity and born out of a church response to the local community need in the Great Yarmouth parish, Pathway offers three free welfare services. Our mission is to offer a high quality Café & Support Centre in our Admiralty Road base, off South Quay, and our Trussell Trust-partnered Food Bank, distributing both from our Great Yarmouth centre and also in Gorleston (from St Mary Magdalene Church NR31 7BZ). Our services are accessible to all.We strive for excellence in our charitable activities and to provide an environment that is warm, welcoming, non-judgemental and free from discrimination. We rely on the generosity and support of volunteers, donors, supporters and other organisations to enable Pathway to deliver our much-needed services in our local community.Alongside our professional staff our Project Manager, Support Officer and Chef, we have a core team of trained volunteers to ensure a safe and welcoming atmosphere whenever we are open and operating. Serving everyone, irrespective of their beliefs or background, we exist solely to provide sustenance and comfort to those in need.
Run as a separate, independent charity, overseen by a board of trustees, Pathway was originally developed as community outreach from the Church of England Parish of Great Yarmouth and continues to be closely supported by their three compassionate congregations. Whilst we do not expect our volunteers to be Christians or of any particular faith, we do ask for all our team to respect our project’s core Christian values and act in a sympathetic, appropriate manner when working with us.
