the4Cs currently works with refugees, asylum seekers and other ‘hard to reach’ communities in North East England and currently comprises of committee members from different communities, backgrounds and areas of expertise.

Currently our main project is 'organic growing'  where we empower participants with 100% organic vegetable growing methods. 
We also handout seeds and /or seedlings of Southern African vegetables to our communities to encourage and create a Get Growing Network.
We strongly practice and support Permaculture Principles.

​We are a proud grant receiver of Make Every Contact Count  - a Gateshead Council initiative which aims to give people and organisations the skills and training they need to engage more effectively with the people they meet.
