DreamShine Community Interest Company

DreamShine CIC, North East

Dreamshine Community Interest Company is a Wallsend based social enterprise covering North East England.

Our primary aim is to help improve the living standards and life chances of local people – and our focus right now is to help people who currently live in either North Tyneside or Newcastle Upon Tyne.

We plan on opening our Well-Beeing Hub and Café in the heart of Wallsend over the next couple of months. Stay updated by signing up for our newsletter.

Community Groups and Funded Activities

We will be opening a Community Hub in Spring 2021. Our hub will initially provide Covid-19 secure, face to face support to our registered service users.

Support will initially be on an appointment basis only – and we will comply with all current regulations.

Pay It Forward

We will soon be opening our new Well-Beeing Hub and Café. (In line with Covid-19 regulations).

This new space will be for all members of our local community.

Times are hard, and we want to create a culture of kindness where everyone looks out for each other, and no-one is left behind.  (We will post regular updates).

Paying-it-forward feels good – and the great thing about it is that EVERYONE can pay ‘something’ forward.

Everyone has a skill or something to offer – and it is not just about giving money.

Here are just some of the ways that you can Pay-it-forward via Dreamshine.

  • Volunteer either in our Café and Hub (in a Covid-19 secure way – when regulations permit) – or now as a Telephone Befriender
  • Donate art and craft supplies.
  • Donate tinned goods, non-perishables, or fresh fruit and vegetables.
  • Pay in advance for a coffee/meal, which we will then give to someone in need.
  • Make a one-off or small regular donation to help us fund our Café and Hub.

Please get in touch and let us know how you would like to Pay It Forward!
