Philanthropy at the Trussell Trust

Making a major gift

We rely on the generous support of individuals to be able to deliver our vital work:

supporting 1200 food banks across the UK to provide emergency food to those in crisis. Last year our network gave out 1.6 million three-day emergency food supplies and 500,000 of these went to children.

working with food banks to provide access to additional services and support for people beyond food, to help resolve the underlying causes of people’s situations

campaigning for change to see greater protection for people in financial crisis and challenging the structural issues that lock people in poverty.

Our dedicated team works to match your interests and values with the work we do. Through regular updates, reports, meetings with senior leaders and access to experts and opportunities to get involved and see the work of our network in action, we will share the impact of your support.

Ultimately, we want to see a UK without the need for food banks. If you, like us, want to see a future where we can start to see food banks close because everyone has enough money coming in to afford life’s essentials, and would like to work together to help make this vision a reality, we would love to hear from you.
