Foodbank vouchers

Our foodbank works using a voucher referral system.

We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons and whilst the Coronavirus is happening in our country, there are more reasons why people will need the support of the Foodbank.

If you are in a position that you cannot afford food due to your circumstances and would like help then please ring 01353 468626 where someone will get back to you within 24 hours to chat through your situation and offer help where possible.

We continue to operate a voucher system but in these times we know there are many people facing challenges for the first time who are not in contact with an agency. To assist with this we are able to issue a voucher for you if you make contact with us and explain your circumstances. You will be able to access our food for a maximum of 3 visits and we will signpost you to a professional agency who will give advice and vouchers if required.

Lots of our agencies can issue an e-voucher which you can take note of and bring this to the Centre for 4-5 days worth of food.
