If you need help from our foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.
The most important step is to get a foodbank voucher.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your difficulties. Agencies we work with include: AdviceNI, MLAs, housing support officers, health visitors, social services and local charities.
Step 1 – Contact an Agency
They will discuss your situation and supply you with a foodbank voucher where appropriate.
