Our newsletter: 2023 round up

8th January 2024

Sadly, for many people in our communities, 2023 was an incredibly tough year. Energy bills and food costs have been at an all time high and households on the lowest incomes simply do not have enough money to cover the essentials. As a result, families are being forced to make impossible decisions about what they will have to go without and we have seen yet another increase in the need for our services.

Despite this, the response from our community continues to amaze and inspire us. From our amazing volunteers who support us week in and week out, to the incredibly generous donations of food, money and time from our local schools, churches, mosques, businesses, clubs and societies. Your contribution has given hope to so many of our families and we are extremely thankful to everyone who has supported us.

We are incredibly proud of our three foodbank hubs. At each location clients are greeted by a friendly team, offered a warm drink and hot snack and given the opportunity to stay for as long or as little as they wish. Our volunteer teams are on hand to make sure our clients get the food items they need for their families.

Read our newsletter to learn more about how we deliver support to the community including emergency food parcels, financial and digital inclusion, winter and fuel costs and school uniform services.
