We would love to be able to have a clothing venue that we were able to help people in communities, to do clothing interventions with, this would be help with job interviews and work wear. Support with school uniforms. The money would go towards us renting a building, new items for our clothing support and be able to offer more support. We have already supported 1000 families.
Underwear should not be an item that children go without.
We are raising money to support families in need with food and clothing support. We will use the funds to buy essential items for children and families, these will include underwear, sanitary products, pyjamas and essential clothing items.
Our ambition is that no family, no child or young person and no individual will face the stigma and shame associated with crisis, particularly focused on the impact that access to weather and age appropriate clothing can have. We provide families with low cost food for the whole family, The team have been working tirelessly to sort clothes into packs ready to give out to people. Already we have supported over 1300 people with clothes and over 500 people with food . The long term vision would be that we would have premises to be able to house all our donations and after Covid-19 have a space that people can come and pick their own clothes, prams and give people dignity and choice when they are in a difficult situation.
The staff and volunteers contact the people who need the support and give them a level of choice of the clothes that they require.
We also can invite the people the many online sessions we run and offer other support if the family are struggling.
We need vital funds as the Clothing Rack and food provision is growing and more people need the support. The need is great and funds will help us to sustain our work.
Thank you for your support.
