RP’s New Advice worker for Leicester Food Bank Plus is Charlie Neale, and can be contacted on 07578 819382 or 0116 255 2071.
The project’s aims are to promote lasting change for foodbank users through benefit and housing advise, and supporting them to make these changes (i.e. supporting them calls, or to fill out a forms) in advice sessions and/or over the telephone.
” The initial Community Food Projects were confirmed as B-Inspired’s Braunstone Foodshare, E2 Food Hub, the Emerald Centre, and Mosaic Food Bank. Information/advice sessions commenced on 29th April 2019.
In line with the project deliverables, the advice session schedule incorporates one half-day advice session per week at each of the community food projects. In August, the E2 Food Hub was replaced as a project partner with Christ the King Church Foodbank due to low levels of client engagement at E2, despite significant service awareness raising work by both E2 and the advice service. The Christ the King Church sessions have had good levels of client demand and attendance; partnership-working with E2 continues with E2 proactively referring clients to the advice service on an as-required basis. All other community food project partners have remained unchanged. Project partners have a key role in promoting the offer of advice to foodbank clients.”
