Helping local people in crisis. “The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. Everyone who comes to the Foodbank for emergency food needs to have a valid foodbank voucher.
Our foodbank works using a voucher referral system. Find out more about how we work.
We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local referral agents. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The referral agent can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis.
Our foodbank works with a number of different agencies, such as Citizens Advice, Housing Welfare Team, Romero Communities, family support workers, mental health teams, social workers and health visitors.
When you get in contact with a referral agent they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. It also means we are able to prepare suitable emergency food for the right number of people.
If you work with individuals in crisis and would like to become a referral agent for our foodbank, please contact us to find out more.
