Storehouse Update

Emma Stewart-Darling writes: ‘We are now working from our new premises at the Vineyard Centre, Tudor Rd, CO10 1NP. Storehouse Drop-ins continue to be busy and getting busier. Compared to last year, we are currently helping over 60% more people. With the changes in the benefits system, we are finding that more people are finding themselves in crisis whilst they are transferred onto the new Universal Credit. This process usually takes around 6 weeks. The UC has been introduced in stages, but is being rolled out to everyone in our area from 18th October, so we suspect that we will have a surge of need leading up to Christmas.

Thank you for your donations. They are making a real difference to people’s lives. We are, quite literally, saving people from total despair and offering them hope and human kindness along with the food.’
