All our referrers are now using e-vouchers. We are no longer using red vouchers.
We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with an e-voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis.
Our foodbank works with a number of different agencies, such as Social Services, children’s centres, schools, doctors and health visitors. To find out more about the agencies that hold our vouchers and how you can get help, please contact us.
When you speak to a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the e-voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. It also means we are able to prepare suitable emergency food for the right number of people. One e-voucher is valid for one food parcel only, and you can have up to 6 e-vouchers in 6 months.
If you are an organisation and would like to be able to issue vouchers for clients, please contact us to find out more.
