We're one of the largest food banks in the north of England.

The number of people using food banks across the UK, has risen from tens of thousands to millions since 2010.  

There are many factors contributing to the rise of food poverty, including national welfare reforms, the rise of zero hours contracts, and struggling local economies. The Welcome Centre provides food, toiletries and other essentials alongside a one-to-one advocacy, guidance and support service tailored to people's needs. 

The people we help all have one thing in common. They are in crisis. 

We know that anyone can find themselves in a financial crisis and we're here to help. Individuals and families face challenges such as job loss, debt and eviction, benefit issues, homelessness, domestic violence, substance misuse, and physical and mental health problems.  Real people find themselves in need of our support. You can read about some of the people we've helped.

The food packs we give out contain enough food for seven days.

We try to provide a good quantity of nutritious, high quality food in our food packs, and tailor each pack to meet people’s dietary requirements and preferences. We believe in respecting people's food choices no matter what financial predicament they find themselves in.

Your support can make all the difference.
