Trussell Trust

Trussell Trust

The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of over 1,200 food bank centres across the UK. Together, we provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

Last year, food banks in our network provided a record 1.6 million food parcels to people in crisis, a 19% increase on the previous year. No one in the UK should need to use a food bank, and we know that together we can create real change.

FareShare

FareShare

FareShare exists because millions of people across the country are struggling to afford to eat, yet at the same time thousands of tonnes of good food goes to waste every week.

We redistribute good food that would otherwise go to waste to frontline charities and community groups supporting vulnerable people, including children, older people, homeless people, and people with a physical or mental illness.

FareShare reaches over 1,900 towns and cities, providing food to almost a million people every week.

With your support FareShare can continue to get food to the most vulnerable in our society.

The Silver Line

The Silver Line

1.2 million older people in Britain struggle with severe loneliness and chronic isolation. The Silver Line aims to tackle this epidemic through the UK’s only 24-hour, free and confidential helpline specifically for older people, providing information, friendship, advice or just a simple chat.

Callers might be bereaved, caring for a partner, housebound due to disability but they all share the intense pain of loneliness. Many have no one else at all to turn to for support. Some simply call to say “goodnight”. With your support we can keep offering a listening ear to thousands of older people, every single day and night of the year.
