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.
Alternatively, please call 020 8670 0070 to speak to Centre 70 who will be able to issue you with a food bank voucher if necessary. Please note that they only have a few telephone lines in and you will not hear an engagement tone if receptionists are on other calls. Email is Centre 70’s preferred way of getting in touch, so please email if you can: [email protected]
Brixton Advice Centre is also a great resource for help and advice. Call 0207 733 7554 between 10am and 3pm, Monday to Thursday.
