How to get help

If you need help from our foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.

Call 07483 115349 today to get a foodbank voucher

The most important step is to get a foodbank voucher.

In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. 

CALL TO GET YOUR VOUCHER TODAY

PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 pandemic a number of referral agencies are not open to the public for face to face meetings. You can obtain vouchers for Stockport Foodbank by telephoning Stockport Foodbank on 07483 115349 Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm

If you need further help, then the following organisations may be worth contacting:
By phone:     Call the CAB’s (Citizen’s Advice) freephone number 0300 330 9073

If you are in financial crisis and live in England or Wales, please call 0808 208 2138 for free (open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm) to talk confidentially with a trained Citizens Advice adviser. They can help address your crises and provide support to maximise your income, help you navigate the benefits system, and identify any additional grants you could be entitled to. If needed, they’ll issue you with a voucher so you can get an emergency food parcel from your local food bank.

When you have a voucher

You can find a list of our local centres and opening times here. When you arrive, we’ll  exchange your foodbank voucher for a parcel of three days of emergency food. We’ll also help to support you in any other ways that we can.

If you have any further questions our FAQ’s page may help, or feel free to give us a call.
