Who we support on a regular basis
By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we are transforming despair into hope. We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster.

About Hebden Bridge
Eight miles west of Halifax, Hebden Bridge nestles in the Upper Calder Valley, part of the South Pennines. It has an enviable reputation as “the town with great little shops”.
Visitors to Hebden Bridge come to sample everything from organic cafes with a Bohemian atmosphere to traditional local pubs serving real ale. Delis, gift shops, local bakers, butchers, exotic food – the town has it all with over 150 mainly independent shops as well as its numerous cafes, bars, restaurants, pubs, theatre, one of Britain’s best small music venues, an independent cinema and, of course, the many festivals and organised events.
Hebden Bridge truly lives up to its cool, liberal, artistic and creative credentials.
