During lockdown, we have provided support to families and vulnerable people who are shielding with shopping, collecting prescriptions or providing a friendly phone call.
We work in conjunction with Dudley Community Volunteer Service, who provide invaluable resources for us to use when helping those in need.
We chair weekly multi-disciplinary meetings where a hub of professionals such as housing, adult services, social services and public health attend and we are able to discuss any concerns.
We have seen a huge increase in families accessing our support and local food banks have seen a 71% increase during the pandemic.
We have supplied over 100 food parcels to date and we envisage this number to increase over the coming months.
We can be contacted by telephone, social media and email.
We will be fully operational over the summer holidays and intend to carry on our support whilst there is demand.
If there is anything you would like to discuss further, or would be interested in informing your parents about us via a digital leaflet, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
