The PFC Trust was set-up with a broad mission of ‘helping Hartlepool people’. Within a short time, it was identified that ‘Sport’ was a major element of the Trust’s focus.

Did you know that a typical carer spends 25 hours a week caring for loved ones? Taking this statistic as a starting point, The PFC Trust launched a fundraising initiative for 2021 based around the number 25. Initially, they were aiming to raise £50,000 to fund a new caravan for Hartlepool Carers and Stockton's Eastern Ravens, with additional sums being used as part of the Trust's Covid-19 response.

Food Partnership

The Hartlepool Food Partnership brings together representatives from the community, food businesses, the voluntary sector, educational institutions and the local authority – who care about the quality, affordability and sustainability of food in their town. By working in partnership with the wider community, a long-term plan is created to make available healthy, affordable and sustainable food.

St Aidens Kitchen

St Aidens Kitchen The Trust provided a grant to the soup kitchen at St Aidan's Church as they were running very low on supplies. The amazing work carried out here by Mother Gemma and the dedicated volunteers was humbling to see and the Trust was proud to be part of it.

Someone who is exceptional, either in their job, or in a voluntary capacity, and deserves recognition as a Hartlepool Hero?

Poolie Time Exchange is part of The Big League CIC which connects people with skills (‘Achievers’) to others who could benefit from them. Achievers earn "Poolie Pounds" which they can then 'spend' on ‘resources’ such as trial job interviews, obtaining on-the-job experience, energy advice, and CVs and training courses.

Hartlepool Carers
