We're still collecting donations

On the 17th December 2021 we'd raised £14,037 with 99 supporters in 75 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

Extra funds are used to purchase supermarket vouchers. These enable people to be able to choose their own food where what and when they want it. This enables a sense of empowerment and choice, a greater sense of self worth and agency.

We have run  Broke Not Broken for the past 6 years and have developed various projects aimed at alleviating the effects of poverty on our service users. 


We use funding to continue providing fresh fruit vegetables and dairy in our food parcels, to ensure we can continue existing successful projects; Fuel Poverty payments; School Uniform Bank; Advice hub to give people advice how to tackle benefits, debt and housing issues; family away days ; winter clothing support; one to one counselling to support mental heath issues. 


We rely on funding to support these projects. We are currently run 100% by volunteers and have very low overheads so we know most of the funding we get can go where it is needed. We are always developing new projects based on collaborating with clients and listening to what matters to them.
