Meeting the Need in the Covid-19 Crisis

Everyone deserves the basics in life, such as enough food to eat and the ability to keep their families warm. We are passionate about meeting the need of those finding themselves in financial hardship, including those impacted due to Covid-19.

We are passionate about supporting the most vulnerable people in our community and about meeting the need for our services as we face an anticipated increase in demand for help as the Coronavirus becomes more widespread - in short well be needed more than ever.

We aim to be here to support this need as much as possible - but we need your help. As the need increases, we also face a significant drop in fundraising income (including due to the cancellation of a number of events) - vital income that is essential in funding our work.

By giving a donation you will be helping to ensure that we can get our vital support to those who need it, when they need it, including those who have directly been affected as a result of Covid-19.

Maybe you've decided not to send Easter Eggs this year? Could you spare the cost of an Easter Egg or two and donate the money to help those in need instead?

Your donation will help to provide items including vouchers for food and household essentials and grants for utilities. Individuals and families face extreme financial pressure as they wait for benefits to be received, or due to a significant change in income and circumstances.

As always, we believe that everyone deserves the basics in life, no matter what they are facing. Everyone deserves to have enough money to feed their family, no-one should have to make decisions between eating or heating....

Whilst our processes and way of working may need to change in light of this crisis, your support will help to ensure we are able to meet the need of those coming to us for support so that everyone can have a decent standard of living, even during these unprecedented times.
