Gears of Goodwill was set up for local residents to go out on to the city streets and meet homelessness head on and help those less fortunate than ourselves. Gears of Goodwill has been running a street kitchen every Friday each week since 2016. Along with hot food, drinks and sandwiches Gears of Goodwill also give out clothing and sleeping bags to the homeless population. Equally important is the genuine friendship the Gears of Goodwill Volunteers give, and just being a friend to those less fortunate can talk too.
Gears of Goodwill also runs a a self help group for men suffering from depression and anxiety known as Band of Brothers. The guys help themselves and each other through friendship and knowing that they are there for each other by listening without judgement.

It's our aim at Gears of Goodwill to get a charity shop and somewhere for homeless people to have a shower and a hot meal and get advice. We hope to achieve this by doing various fundraisers within the community.
Gears of Goodwill host various fundraising events, including band nights, and superstore events. Please keep a eye out for upcoming events on the News page.
Gears of Goodwill hopes this will build strong ties and friendships with other local charities where we can all link up and work together to make a difference.
Hopefully we will be able to expand to other areas and help our homeless population and those disadvantaged where ever they can be found.
