PACT HOUSE STANLEY 

Pact House Stanley is hub for community access to help to reduce isolation, support people with well being, address and support local people in poverty. We support people in the local community in food poverty with food packs and through low cost and free meals in the community cafe. We help people to access services, training and information they need to improve their quality of life.
