The BASIC Life Charity


BASIC New Shop 009

Our Felixstowe shop moved to bigger premises on Monday 16th July 2012 - We are now at 17 Hamilton Road, Felixstowe

Welcome to BASIC!

 Based in Felixstowe, UK, BASIC are an independent Charitable Trust who operate under the following objects:-

We exist to enable people irrespective of their race or religion to be provided with the BASICs of life: Shelter, Food, Education, Recreation and Spiritual guidance.

While our 'public face' has been our traditional charity shop in Felixstowe town centre, BASIC also operate an international fund which has provided relief and aid to many individuals and organisations worldwide.

From the initial idea in 1997, through our acceptance as a registered Charitable Trust in 2000, we have been able to assist many groups, organisations and individuals with financial, practical and general support.

We are a 'people' Charity and believe our mission is to support those in need and to provide assistance for those who are otherwise prevented from realising their own charitable goals.
