ARK EASTLEIGH

ARK Eastleigh serves the vulnerable and excluded in our community through practical acts of kindness, befriending, and informal advocacy. We work in partnership with other local organisations to reduce social isolation and empower families and individuals to overcome the challenges they face.

ARK Eastleigh was started in 2008 when a local School requested help supporting a few local families. Since then ARK Eastleigh has developed into a Charity and supports people all over the area of Eastleigh.

Christmas Hamper Appeal 2021

As we do every year, we will be purchasing food and distributing it this Christmas to our clients and will be providing food to feed over 200 people. In a recent ARK Eastleigh survey, 50% of respondents reported that they had eaten less fresh food under lockdown than normal.  Our hampers always include fresh meat, vegetables, and fruit and will ensure that families have nutritious food in the holidays.

On your bike!

Gavin, our New Chair of Trustees will be cycling 500 miles throughout October in support of Ark Eastleigh. The funds raised will go towards supporting families and individuals who access Ark Eastleigh.

Gavin who has taken part in a number of sponsored cycle rides in the past said; It is such a privilege to take up this challenge. I believe that Ark Eastleigh creates a unique support system that empowers people and changes lives. This is a great way for us to support the team and to see Acts of kindness expressed throughout our community.

Our Mission is to serve the vulnerable and excluded in our community through practical acts of kindness, befriending, and informal advocacy. We work in partnership with other local organisations to reduce social isolation and empower families and individuals to overcome the challenges they face.

Our Values

​Faith

Our Christian faith inspires and directs all we do

listening to and learning from feedback ;

managing our resources wisely.

Love

We make every effort to build healthy relationships with clients, partner organisations, supporters, volunteers, and employees realising that our actions speak louder than our words.

We are in no position to judge those we serve and respond compassionately to all those seeking help.

We build relationships with patience, persistence, gentleness, and kindness.

We recognise that every individual is unique and significant and has something to contribute.

Hope

We have hope in every situation and respond prayerfully and creatively to challenges.

We are happy to give an answer to anyone who asks about our hope in Jesus though we are careful never to impose our beliefs on others.
