Many Foodbank clients are low income families hit by a crisis that is not their fault such as redundancy, reduced working hours or something as seemingly small as an unexpected bill. Others are victims of domestic violence, people experiencing benefit delay or facing debt problems or those hit by illness.
Foodbanks are an emergency food service: to prevent dependency on Foodbanks our clients are entitled to up to three consecutive Foodbank vouchers.
To help clients break out of poverty, we signpost clients to organisations able to resolve the underlying problem. Foodbanks make time for people. Volunteers are trained to provide a listening ear over a cup of tea and sometimes this makes the biggest difference.
