About this cause

We provide emergency food parcels, fuel top-ups and vouchers to purchase essential items, including clothes such as shoes. We also work with supporting agencies to provide funding from our emergency account. These include taxi fares, GP letters, court fees and emergency accommodation. We have had a debt adviser previously and we are setting this up again now. We liaise with over 50 agencies.

How this cause brings people in the community together

We usually have over 50 volunteers from across the area. This was reduced to 15 because of Covid-19. We have remained face-to-face throughout lockdown, providing a safe place for help. We have kept open channels with other supporting agencies, such as Citizens Advice, GPs, schools, housing, mental health, police and probation, and addiction and domestic violence teams.
