As part of the city wide Child Poverty Strategy we have close working partnerships with a number of different organisations. Being based in the Four Greens Community Trust building enables us to link better with other organisations, all under one roof, e.g. Tea and Toast, Harbour, Speech & Language, Livewell, Midwives, Pop up library and community fitness classes. Please ask at the Whitleigh reception for any more information.
We also have close links with LIDL supermarkets. They supply us with food that they are unable to sell due to damaged packaging or short shelf life. We distribute this to our most vulnerable families in our area, helping to compliment the service provided by our local Foodbank, who have an unprecedented demand.
