About Us

Humanity Torbay was formed in March 2017, It started life at 1A Castle Road, Torquay as an advice centre for all requiring help and assistance with benefits,  housing enquiries, and advocacy by appointment. Additional to this service, it provided an invaluable supporting service for street homeless persons, in need of some respite, food, warmth, cups of tea/coffee, spare clothing and some social contact during the day, especially during the winter months.  The building outgrew its usefulness towards the end of the summer 2018 and HT, moved its base of operation to 180 Union Street on 1st August 2018, establishing itself primarily as an advice centre (for benefits, mental health and food referals. The numbers of people (including families) requiring our services has grown considerably: (especially with the onset and transitioning to Universal Credit). We take numerous clothing and food donations, that are handed out to all those who need these additional services and we also provide shower and washing machine facilities.We ask you to support us so that we can pay our rent and utility costs enabling Humanity to continue offering support to our clients, those in danger of becoming homeless and working families who can't afford to feed their children owing to delays in receiving Universal Credit payments.  We are also helping disabled and sick people apply for PIP's and challenge the many refusals that are being received.To make donations please make cheques payable to Humanity Torbay. or by bank transfer to sort code 20-87-94 A/C Number 73267121.
