How it began

A belief that we can all make a difference

Loveworks.org was set up in 2008 by Linda Souris in the belief that great good could be done if people who cared pooled their efforts and resources.

Loveworks original mission was to run local projects where there was seen to be an unmet need. Since 2008 there have been a number of diverse projects mainly targeting food poverty, social isolation and building resilience in young adults.

In 2019 we had a major strategy review and decided our focus would be on food as it has generally been at the heart of everything we do and where we feel we are best fitted to helping make a real difference in our community. 

A vehicle to maximise combined effort

We believe that a lot of people ask themselves; “What can I do when the needs are so great – I am just one person” and that it can be a very disabling thought. What Loveworks provides is a vehicle through which people can join together as a community and work collectively for good. Many hands make light work and every river is composed of millions of water drops – each one tiny on its own but flowing and powerful when added together.

We are proud of the projects we have run for local people in need. They are a very thoroughly devised and creative response to the people they are intended for. We always work in conjunction with partner organisations locally which helps us identify un-met need as well as the beneficiaries we are best placed to provide for.

We hope this website inspires you to join us on the journey, turning these convictions into practical action, helping us to give something timely and relevant to local people in need.
