First Base Agency

First Base is a drug, alcohol and gambling information centre. Our services include support projects for Veterans, families and women at risk of violence as a result of addiction problems. We deliver presentations, training, issue food parcels and give ‘signposting’ advice to visitors to the Agency.

Story

There are times when managing a small front line charity can pretty trying. As sure as night follows day, over 5000 hungry individuals and families will be arriving at our door looking for emergency food. As sure as night follows day, inflation is going hammer up the price of food and power and already limited means will suddenly be incapable of paying for life's basics.

Demand for emergency food will keep on going up and trying to raise enough
cash to make help the people we need to help will continue to get
harder. A few years ago we used to be able to look to Trusts and the
Council and the Government to help us out. Now it seems the only show
in town for most of the front line charities is the community.

You guys.
