NDN Community Interest Company (C.I.C) aims to assist disadvantaged, disassociated, under-funded and/or alienated individuals, groups and/or organisation in Liverpool.
This is done through by helping people get access to information regarding; Housing, Foodbanks, Foodclub, Community Food Partnerships (CFP’s), Recycled Paint, New and used clothes, goods and appliances, Debt Advice, Parent and Baby Programmes, Debt and Welfare advise, Legal Matters, Employment and much more.
NDN has gathered a large amount of knowledge, experience and skills from a multitude of communities from around the world. By embracing different cultures, religions and nationalities from all parts of society, it has learnt how to improve and create a stronger and invigorating co-existence for all within the community.
NDN is involved with several organisations in European City Capital of Culture’s, which brings together many of the aspects of the life-skills, topics and subjects that it wishes for people to experience and benefit from. This adds the opportunity to work with and learn from; individuals, groups and organisations from Europe and around the world.
NDN is looking to involve people of all ages, backgrounds, educational levels, employment status, religions and origins, by adding to their life experiences, which will decrease barriers and increase knowledge of all involved.
Understanding each other’s differences makes it easier for individuals, groups, and organisations to appreciate, interact and work together on a personal, social, educational and employment level.
THERE ARE A MULTITUTE OF EVENTS, BUT THEY BASED AROUND PROVIDING A SHOPPING EXPERIENCE OR FOOD PARCELS (because if a car has fuel in the tank, it can drive anywhere!).
By giving individuals, groups and organisations the opportunity to experience, learn and take-part in activities involving; Art, Culture, Heritage, History, Religion, Food&Drink, Health, Tourism, Hospitality, Business and Customer Service, it will expand their knowledge of aspects of life that they may not have known about, understood or previously appreciated. These activities can involve just one, several or all life-skills, topics or subjects depending of the needs of the participants.
By using and taking advantage of what they have experienced and learnt as individuals, groups and organisations, they can improve or create a new destination for themselves. They will also know they have worked within a network that will continue to give them the support system they need.
In order to help fund the above, it raisers money through sponsorships, grants and funds, but also accepts Money and Food Donations, to ensure that it remains sustainable.
