About The People’s Kitchen

NCASS is supporting The People’s Kitchen which provides a safety-net and a vital lifeline of friendship, food and clothing for the most disadvantaged in our society, the homeless and the vulnerable.

Our vision is to play a unique role in the City’s efforts to meet the needs of homeless and vulnerable people.

We have been supporting those who need our help in Newcastle for three decades.

Established thanks to one woman’s determination, our organisation has grown enormously from its humble beginnings under the railway arches at Dean Street, but our philosophy remains the same. We continue to offer clothes, food, warm surroundings, and a warm welcome to anyone that needs our help.

NCASS (Northern Chartered Accountant Students’ Society) is the official body that represents ACA students under ICAEW training contracts in the Northern Society area in the North East of England and Cumbria.

We have been supporting student chartered accountants across northern England since 1896 and we are part of the Northern Society of Chartered Accountants. Newly-qualified members join Northern Society when they have both completed all of their ICAEW exams and completed their period of practical work expereince when they are entitled to call themselves ICAEW Chartered Accountants.

NCASS is run by ACA student volunteers for ACA students and, space permitting, new committee members are always welcome.
