About this cause

We develop budgeting advice to families working with the foodbank to make sure they have access to food while getting support from us. The pandemic has changed some people’s lives forever and now that we are recovering, the government will start to remove help. It's been hard for people to adjust financially when prior to the pandemic they were in full employment and now need unexpected support.

How this cause brings people in the community together

By helping each client through the process we will highlight and negotiate with Housing Associations, West Berkshire Council, DWP, Trussell Trust Food Bank and other agencies, so that we can help people manage their finances in a sustainable and realistic way. This will mean that other agencies within West Berkshire can signpost people to us. Advice can change people's lives and wellbeing.
