Since June 2008 PATCH has been giving free food parcels, clothing and household items to those in a financial crisis in Pembrokeshire. We work closely with our referral agencies to help those that are experiencing hardship through perhaps a delay in benefits, fire, theft and escaping emergency situations.

Covid-19, Coronavirus statement

We have had to make changes in the way we operate. We have increased our strict cleaning regime and have taken action to keep both visitors and staff/volunteers as safe as possible at this difficult time.

Hand sanitizer is available on our front desk for all visitors and we will be keeping to the Government guidelines of social distancing. All volunteers/staff will be washing their hands more frequently and again as the government guidelines.

We will have stock parcels made up for clients (where possible) when the visit to make their stay as short as possible. Many referral agencies will hold emergency parcels to also hand over with as little contact as possible.

Any volunteer/staff or their families showing any physical signs mentioned in the government safety advice will not be allowed into our bases.

We have temporarily closed all bases except Milford Haven.
