Charity of the Year 2018 – The Trussell Trust

We are delighted to announce that we will be supporting The Trussell Trust as our Charity of the Year throughout 2018.

In the UK, 1.3 million people are officially destitute – unable to afford life’s essentials. The Trussell Trust is an anti-poverty charity that partners with local communities to help STOP UK HUNGER and provides Nationwide Foodbank Coverage with a network of over 400 foodbanks handing out emergency food and support to people in crisis in the UK.

Each year, over 12 million meals are given out to over 500,000 individuals, and the number keeps growing. To build resilience and help prevent people needing referral to a foodbank again, the charity has a More Than food approach, creating free additional support services, like debt advice and budget cookery courses. Over 40,000 frontline professionals refer people to The Trussell Trust foodbanks and foodbank volunteers are also trained to signpost people to other agencies and services able to help resolve the underlying cause of the crisis.
