How can we help you?

Our members have a  variety of services available to tackle food poverty...

COVID-19:
Many of our member organisations have closed their doors for safety reasons during the pandemic.

The Bridge (East Midlands) is working closely with Charnwood Borough Council and John Storer House to ensure support is available in these challenging times, working within Government guidelines.

If you are experiencing hardship and need support with food, please contact our team at The Bridge (East Midlands) on 08000385964.

 

We will update this page with Covid-19 Individual Service Updates when organisations and projects decide to re-open their doors.
