More Than A Foodbank

Although food provision is a big part of the services we provide, this is just the tip of the iceberg. We provide food support through the supply of regular food parcels to adults and families who need us, but we also provide support to people struggling with their finances through our ‘Christians Against Poverty’ (CAP Scheme).

We can also offer support for people coping with emotional or mental health issues and will be running next year, a new programme of sessions aimed at helping people gain confidence in a wide range of areas including stress workshops, money management, up-skilling for a career, healthy eating workshops and more!
