Our friendly team look forward to welcoming you to Shildon Alive. Please pop in, have a cup of tea and a chat and find out more about us. Exciting volunteer opportunities are available.
Community Shop & Takeaway
Our pioneering shop and takeaway is for everyone in the community. The shelves are stocked daily with affordable cupboard essentials, as well as food surplus which otherwise would have been delivered to landfill. Why not pop in and try one of our nutritious takeaways and find out how our community shop can work for you?
