The Big Umbrella

Noel Jones is proud to partner with The Big Umbrella in 2020.

The Big Umbrella Foundation is committed to the principle that every person should live free from poverty and exploitation.

As an NGO based in Australia, The Big Umbrella Foundation works locally and abroad to address issues impacting on marginalised people, including those affected by human rights abuses, exploitation, forced labour and homelessness.

One of the valuable programs run by The Big Umbrella is ‘A Real Meal.’ ‘A Real Meal’ is more than providing hot food to the marginalised communities of Melbourne, it aims to create friendships, build trust and give the most important thing one can give…. time. “Time Caring” as The Big Umbrella call it – is something that can so easily be taken for granted in our busy day to day lives, filled with appointments and friends, but for our friends on the street, the time of day can be the most valuable thing to share with another and equally the one thing that is missed the most.
