Message from Advice UK:
Does your advice service work closely with foodbanks or other community groups to support people who don't have money to buy food and other essentials, perhaps because of a problem with benefits income or debt?
Are you looking to develop the practical support you offer alongside the advice you give?  Do you have experiences, tips or challenges that you would like to share with AdviceUK and AdviceUK members?
 
We are working with The Trussell Trust to develop the support we offer to both advice services and foodbanks, and address the root causes of foodbank use.  We need you to take two simple steps:
 
Firstly, tell us if you work with a foodbank locally - and if so, who runs the foodbank.
 
Secondly, tell us if you would be happy to share your experiences of working with local foodbanks and community groups.
