CO-VID19 UPDATE

Important info and guidance for those who need our help

Covid-19 Key Support Links v3.0

Governmental guidance continues to be that they support the operation of the foodbank as vital support to the local community. (‘similar Facilities may remain open for the purpose of hosting essential voluntary or public services, such as food banks or homeless services’).
Therefore our intention remains that we will stay open for as long as possible, however to support our volunteers and to help people who are isolating we are moving towards a delivery service. So if you plan on attending a session please let us know via private message and we will sort a parcel getting out to you.
Things we will need to know:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Number of people in house hold (Adults and Children)
  • Referral Agency (If you are self referral there will be a few more questions just to ensure we can get you in touch with a support agency where needed.
From there we will sort a delivery during one of our session times.

The sessions will remain open during our usual Opening times for those unable, for what ever reason, to receive a home delivery.
