Your support makes a difference

Maddie* was one of the 42,000 people who called the Help through Hardship helpline last year, after fleeing domestic violence. Living in temporary accommodation with her child, Maddie did everything she could to cope but she was under huge financial and emotional strain.

Thankfully, a helpline adviser helped her access a wide range of support services, including a mental health referral and a school uniform grant for her child. That was the day things changed for Maddie ‚Äď yet thousands of others are still urgently in need of help.

With food banks now at breaking point, this kind of life-changing advice is more important than ever in easing the pressure.

So please help us provide advice and support to people facing hardship, bringing us one step closer to a UK where everyone can afford the essentials and nobody needs to use a food bank.
