Our Story

In 2001, Trent Vineyard found a row of derelict arches under Abbey Bridge and converted and renovated them into a place to store and distribute furniture, household goods, clothing and baby equipment. After 11 years of growth, Trent Compassion moved into a building on Lenton Lane, next to Trent Vineyard. 

From here, we have expanded and joined together with other projects across Trent Vineyard, including supporting part of our Trent Vineyard family working overseas, those going into prisons, getting to know people living on the streets and a number of other projects. All of these projects, focusing on supporting those in need, became known as Trent Compassion.
