​Community W​elfare Trust

CWT is a registered charity that was established over 20 years ago for the people of Stockton-On-Tees to support their spiritual needs. Since then it has grown to encompass a whole host of activities which are aimed at improving the lives of people not just in Stockton-On-Tees but across the whole Tees Valley. 

​Ultimately the Community Welfare Trust exists to enhance outcomes for local communities and break down barriers . We work in partnership with a number of local and regional organisations including NHS TEWV, Public Health Stockton, Stockton Council, Friends of Ropner Park, Catalyst, Citizen's Advice Bureau  and BECON.

CWT takes a whole family approach and we ensure that our activities are developed to enhance outcomes for all ages. 

Volunteering with CWT

Volunteers are important to us for the delivery of the services and activities. Many of our volunteers take a lead on our projects as well as helping in the office.  If you would like to volunteer with us, please contact us on
