Helping people make a difference, by providing a bridge between those who want to give time, money, things or skills and those who are in need.
Where did the name come from?
The name Besom derives from a broom made of twigs. This broom ‘The Besom’ is the symbol of Besom’s vision which is to ’Sweep away Suffering’.
The Besom is about Helping you make a Difference
Poverty, isolation, abuse, ill health, injustice, homelessness. We all see the sharp inequalities of life around us and the devastating impacts they have on people’s lives. Many of us want to do something, to get involved but we don’t always know how. The Besom, set up in 1987, exists to help you make a difference to the lives of others — and to make it easy for you to do so.
The Besom is about Creating a Bridge
The Besom helps people make a difference, by providing a bridge between those who want to give time, money, things or skills and those who are in need. It ensures what is given is used effectively. The service it provides is free.
The Besom is for Everyone
The aim behind The Besom is that everyone — whether you are three years old or over 80, whether working full-time or part-time, a student, a mum with toddlers, in between jobs or retired — you can get involved. By giving your time, money, things or skills you can help those who are in real need and make a long term positive difference to their lives.
