Local help

All around the UK are local groups that are co-ordinating volunteers to get food and essentials to people who need it.

You can also look for support through Facebook groups set up for your local area. Some groups or volunteers may post about the services they offer or you can ask for help finding a local volunteer group.

Food banks & other services

If you cannot afford food, search online for your local food bank or find a food bank on the Trussell Trust website.


Many supermarkets have changed their service to help those who are vulnerable to coronavirus.
