Eligibility

Coordinators:

During COVID-19, we build and distribute food parcels for vulnerable families and individuals across the wider community. We are also doing shopping trips for high risk and elderly people as well as collecting prescriptions for them too.

We also help by providing hampers for families most in need filled with crafts, toys and activities to help them through the school holidays; clothing for children and adults, including school uniform; sourcing household goods for people starting out, etc.

On the date of listing we have 15  volunteers

Referral

Often we have referrals from external agencies where they would have already been means tested.

But we try to gain a good understanding of why the client is asking for support.

For shopping trips and pharmacy collection, there's no criteria, however we do ask for shopping to be reimbursed.

Should we feel further support is needed after several parcels have been issued, then we will signpost to the relevant service
