Supporting people in crisis

People are in real need in our community – every week families are going hungry because they can’t make ends meet.

We rely on cash and food donations, please help us if you can. We provide practical, short-term support: basic essentials such as food, toiletries, household items, and bedding. We are also there as a listening ear and for sign-posting to specialist services to get further help, if required.
