Food, Clothing & Furniture

Food bank in action

If you are in a desperate situation and do not have enough money to provide for yourself or your family, we can help. Our aim is to give you a helping hand so that you can gain a greater level of control over your life. 

A lack of money is often the reason that people come to us for help. Alongside short-term assistance with food, clothing, and furniture, we link people into longer-term support such as parenting classes, short-term housing and budgeting advice. Our staff work with people to assess their correct benefit entitlements and help deal with various government departments.

How do I get assistance?

Our support is provided through our Community Ministries centres and corps (churches). It's best to contact a Salvation Army centre near you directly.

What will happen when I go to a Salvation Army centre?

When you visit one of our centres, you will undergo an assessment with one of our staff. If you are on a benefit, we will check to make sure you are receiving it in full, which can sometimes make a huge difference. 

The assessment is also an opportunity to find out if any of our other services could help improve your situation.
