Be right in the middle of things, helping keep the organisation moving, for a busy charity renowned for its amazing work with some of Britain's most excluded people.

About Us

First Love Foundation, a Christian charity, was founded 10 years ago with a desire to see the transformation of society through the pursuit of justice, dignity, and equality for all members of the society. Our vision is for Britain without poverty and our work is underpinned by the belief that no one regardless of faith, ethnicity, socio-economic background, or any other factor should live in poverty or go through this type of crisis alone.

Based in the east end of London, First Love Foundation works with families and individuals experiencing crisis i.e. ‘income-shocks’ ranging from incorrect denial (or suspension of) welfare support, serious ill health, debt, homelessness, right through to domestic violence, trapping them in a continuous cycle of poverty.

We respond to poverty and crisis through the delivery of our highly regarded solutions-oriented Enabling Lives Programme. The programme provides instant access to high-quality support and advice at the point of crisis.

Our mission is ‘to empower people to create their own independent lives by working alongside them with love”. This mission and our theory of change have been carefully developed over many years on the front line, helping people in crisis and learning what it takes for people to break the cycle of poverty.

With projects already in the pipeline that will serve to help even more families and individuals make the journey out of their crisis, we have scope for scale which needs to be supported internally by strong management of crucial areas of the charity’s operations.
