Who we are:

First Stop Darlington officially opened its doors in May 1999 having been established by a group of like-minded individuals committed to helping the homeless, those close to homelessness and the socially excluded in Darlington. 

What we do:

First Stop Darlington works with people, not problems!

We provides advice, guidance, support and onward referral to those in need.  We deal with a wide range of subjects in a relaxed and friendly environment, no problem is too small or too big for us.

How we do it:

  • A listening ear
  • Practical advice
  • Assistance with form filling
  • One to one support
  • Onward referral
  • Pre-employment skills training
  • Job clubs
  • Private landlords’ lists
  • Free telephone and internet

Why we do it:

Without First Stop, the clients that we work with would lose advocacy, personalised and non-judgemental support, training and guidance and most importantly, the gateway or stepping-stone to independent living as a contributing member of society
