We have set up a “Basics Bank” of non-perishable food (we can take some fresh food items as well) , clothing, toiletries and small household items, donated by churches, and various other organisations or individuals, in order that when referred to us by various care workers. We provide for each individual’s needs when in an emergency situation. We work only on a referral basis, with those in need referred to us from outside agencies such as Health Workers, Support Agencies, CAB, Social Services, and the like; these agencies have Basics Bank vouchers to give to their clients who are in an emergency situation. People find themselves in financial crises for many reasons, some of which could be losing employment and waiting for benefits, homelessness, fire or marriage breakdown.
We also have made up food parcels held in Churches and referral agents offices for easier access.
