A Northamptonshire based charity set up and run by a group of impassioned local people - supported by local small business keen to give back to the communities they work with.
In its earlier form and called Walk for a cause, the Charity was set up in 2006 and was initially based at Kingsthorpe Medical Centre.
Having successfully supported local cause for the last 15 years Northants Community Aid has been formed to carry on that good work but with the support of local businesses and, of course, fantastic individual efforts as well a few fundraising events..
Over the years, the Charity has gone through various changes in the way it raises its funds but has always stayed true to the objective of supporting communities and charities in the county.
NDAS began under the name of Northampton Women’s Aid in 1976. Originally staffed by volunteers the organisation has changed a lot since then but has always been dedicated to helping and supporting the victims of domestic abuse.
In these COVID times this victim support service has never been more important
