We have awarded £25,000 (over one year) Norwood and Brixton Foodbank. This project will enable the foodbank to continue to offer advice at the four weekly foodbank sessions (2 sessions at Norwood - advice provided by Centre 70; 2 sessions at Brixton - advice provided by Brixton Advice Centre BAC). When Foodbank guests present a food voucher, the Foodbank volunteers will identify whether additional advice would be useful. They will then be passed onto the in-house adviser to support issues relating to benefits, housing or debt. Additional advice can also be provided via phone and internet. Where a situation requires in-depth case work, the guest will be referred to the relevant advice centre. There will be snapshot 'monitoring' carried out over a month by Foodbank volunteers to get a representative sample of the impact of the project.
