Emergency Food

WE CARE UK LOGOlevelling up

Funded through the UKSPF Levelling Up fund, North Warwickshire BC is now working with We Care UK to provide emergency food for people who are struggling and in a food crisis. We Care UK is a 100% volunteer-led charitable organisation. To find out more information about We Care UK visit www.wecare-uk.co.uk 

The following organisations have been approved, and if you are already in touch with them and working with them, they will be able to make an application on your behalf:

  • NWBC
  • Citizens Advice
  • Family Information Service
  • Act on Energy
  • Better Housing Better Health
  • Severn Trent Water

You will not be able to refer yourself.

Once a referral is made, We Care UK will contact you directly within a few hours, so you must make sure you give the correct, or best contact details, to put on the referral form.

We Care UK will contact you to talk about making arrangements to deliver the food directly to your accommodation. Please make sure you are in at the time agreed as this may affect any future food awarded.

‘Emergency Food’ provided by We Care UK is for those who are in a crisis. To have access to further awards you will also need to work with We Care UK who will offer and provide money advice and support and will signpost you to other help when it is needed.

If you are struggling and need help with food, please call the council on 01827 715341.
