We are genuinely pleased that you’ve found this page, and we would love to help you if we can.
Before we can help you, we would like someone who knows you – such as Health Visitor, Midwife, Social Worker, Tenancy Support Worker or someone who works for Sheffield Citizens Advice to make a request on your behalf. This is called a referral – and it helps us ensure that your situation is genuine.
The best way to find out which person/organisation to talk to is to think about what is causing the food crisis. If, for example, your benefits have been suspended due to a change in circumstances, then an advice centre is a good place to start. If you have a long-term medical problem, then talk to your GP, Practice Nurse or Support Worker and see if they feel able to make a request on your behalf.
If you’re not sure where to start, do give us a call. We don’t bite, and we will try and get you connected with a relevant organisation that should be able to provide you with ongoing help and advice – which might mean they make a referral back to us for food if that is appropriate.
