If you have been affected financially due to the current crisis please do not suffer in silence. The Voluntary Help Centre (VHC), Sole Bay Care Fund, the local churches, Southwold Town Council and Reydon Parish Council are working together to ensure local people have access to fresh and store cupboard food.

If you are self-employed and out of work, waiting for tax credits, or are unsure when you will be paid and are struggling to buy food please call us on 01502 724549. You will be asked a few basic questions to assess your need but there is no lengthy referral process and no paperwork for you to complete.

We are not able to provide people with an endless supply of food, but we are able to help in the short term. It will be expected that people contact landlords/mortgage providers and utility companies to arrange payment breaks or lower payments whilst their income is being affected by Coronavirus, food needs to be your main priority and companies are being very accepting of this at the moment.

Your details will not be shared with others without your knowledge and consent and any information you give us will be held securely and confidentially.

Phone lines are manned Monday to Friday from 9am -1pm with an answer phone available outside these hours.
