Coronavirus Update – Just to let you know that the Fareham & Gosport Basics Bank is sadly unable to currently meet their client’s needs safely. They have passed their entire food stock to Acts of Kindness, who are able to deliver and will provide support.
If you need food support please contact AoK direct.
Also, there is very high demand at the moment, so they have very specific needs. If you are able to donate, please look at their web site to see what they are looking for and where you can leave your donation.
In the last 12 months, the Basics Bank has provided a weeks worth of free food to over 1900 people in our area going through a period of crisis. Each parcel provides food for a week and may also contain items such as toiletries and nappies depending on the need.
The service is accessed through over 25 agencies in this area that come into contact with people that are likely to require assistance, such as Health Visitors, the Probation Service, Social Services, Job Centre Plus, Council Housing Offices, homeless Charities etc.
Fareham and Gosport’s Basics Bank is totally dependent on voluntary donations.
