FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors. They take good quality surplus food from across the food industry and get it to almost 11,000 frontline charities and community groups. The food redistributed is nutritious, in-date and good to eat. During this time of crisis, they are providing an emergency response, delivering vital food supplies to frontline organisations providing a lifeline to those most in need. These include older people and those with serious health conditions, and children who would usually access free school meals, and are at greater risk of hunger and malnutrition as a result of school closures.
Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. Home-Start works with families in communities right across the UK. Starting in the home, their approach is as individual as the people they are helping. Across all four nations of the United Kingdom, 13,500 home-visiting volunteers support over 27,000 families and 56,000 children to transform their lives.
