Getting people through the most difficult times in their lives.

Reasons to support us

Faced with the prospect of or going through financial hardship can be immense and happen to anyone at any time. We hope that by providing people with the support they need to get through this difficult time with food, drinks, clothing, toiletries and other living essentials will make a difference to the recovery. Similarly, people who find themselves homeless or facing homelessness and in need of signposting to housing, debt and gambling advice, benefits, alcohol or drug addiction or in need of support for domestic abuse will be listened to and supported throughout.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have had to reduce the number of volunteers in enclosed spaces to comply with social distancing rules.
