First Love Foundation, a Christian charity was founded over nine years ago with a desire to see the transformation of society through the pursuit of justice, dignity and equality for all members of society. Our work is underpinned by our belief that no one, regardless of faith, ethnicity, socio-economic background or any other factor should go through a 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, which provides instant access to high-quality support and advice at the point of crisis.
Our vision is “to see a world where people are enabled and empowered to live sustainable and independent lives” alongside our theory of change, which has been carefully developed over many years we have dealt with the crisis on the front line. 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 underpinned firstly through raising adequate funding but also through increasing the awareness and public profile of First Love Foundation and its transformative work
