Horsham Matters Cost of Living Crisis

Last year we provided more emergency food parcels to adults and children than we have since our charity began. The cost of living increases continue to have a devastating impact and we need your help to support everyone in our community.

Story

In 2023 Horsham District Foodbank provided 10,220 emergency food parcels to people facing hardship. This is the most parcels our charity has ever provided, even during the pandemic. As 2024 begins, we are bracing ourselves for an even busier year helping those suffering food and energy poverty due to increasingly stretched household incomes.

Horsham Matters provides practical support, be it through emergency food parcels, energy vouchers, or a free hot meal at our weekly community cafe. We also provide basic household essentials such as a bed, mattress or furniture to those newly housed after homelessness or escaping insecure living situations.

Alongside this we offer a range of advice services that make a long-term difference; from household budgeting and benefits advice, to advocacy and counselling.

We are committed to making life better for the most vulnerable in our community, but we need your help to do this.

Your donation, however small, can make a difference.

£19 will fund 3 days of emergency food provision for a single person

£21 will buy a kettle for someone newly housed

£45 will fund a 3-day foodbank parcel for a family of 4

£49 will fund a gas/electricity voucher for someone who is experiencing energy poverty

£80 will provide a double mattress for someone newly housed
