Gold quotes

Our impact

Thank you and your volunteers for your continued services in providing and delivering food parcels for people on probation. It has been a huge support and greatly received by many individuals who would otherwise struggle to have access to food and toiletries.
Ellie Neeson, HM Prison & Probation Service
Since we have been working with the foundation, they have been instrumental in ensuring that none of our clients will be left without food. The volunteer-led service is a trustworthy, valued ally who have sustained support on an ongoing basis. Our social workers have been able to access much-needed resources in times where funding to local services have been drastically reduced.
Kate Murby, NHS Foundation Trust
Many thanks for supporting the many families in crisis. You have helped over 50 families, including many single adult families who are unable to work, along with many people with moderate learning disabilities, and mental health issues. Your support has been key in helping these families through extremely hard times.
Claire Kalinauckas, Northamptonshire Learning Disabilities Service
The foundation started supporting our individual clients and refuges last year. It has provided food parcels to new clients coming into refuge who have no money or food. They provided Christmas dinners for clients in refuge last year which made a huge difference and brought joy to mothers and children at a difficult time.
Natriece Westwood, Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service
Young people in care often have very limited budgets and what you and your team continue to offer them is essential and very much appreciated. You are making such a difference to people that have and are struggling to have food and everyday essentials in their cupboards. A huge thank you to you and your team. You guys are amazing.
