About us

Our organisation has been running for over

30 years, we set up as a local charity to support our surrounding community. We have recently taken a major step to move location to be more central and develop our outreach programs.

Sunderland Family Zone is now able to cove all areas throughout the city and surrounding areas.


Our volunteers and paid staff deliver a variety of services and activities ranging from:-

Food banks

Community Pantry

Learning services covering

Maths, English, IT, Art & Crafts

and so much more.


Sunderland Family Zone's success speaks for itself!

We deliver various outreach programs within sheltered accommodation, community groups, schools, churches and local organised events such as: Cuthys big bike ride, Macmillan Charity events
