Saltbox has provided a much-loved and valued service for communities across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire since 1987. Our original founding vision was to provide Christian support and encouragement for local faith groups to help them flourish. Since 2001, however, Saltbox has developed a range of charitable caring initiatives for vulnerable adults.
Saltbox has developed a range of caring services for vulnerable people including Restart (housing support for ex-offenders), CareLink (befriending service for lonely elderly people). Saltbox supports local churches encouraging unity, prayer, mission and mercy projects. Saltbox has helped to pioneer the use of Faith Action Audits and also civic prayer breakfasts.
Saltbox’s work and ministry is an outworking of Christian care and compassion. We work hard to promote united Christian working both within the faith sector and also with other sectors (local councils, police, probation, NHS, social services, media, etc).
Saltbox aims to continue to provide its services for those in need and to be “salt and light” in the community. We are exploring possible growth opportunities beyond Stoke-on-Trent.
