Free meal and food bank services
- Windhill Community Centre (Shipley) have cancelled their courses but are staying open to provide free meals between 9am and 10:30am for breakfast, 12:30am and 1pm for lunch and then 4pm and 5pm. Their number is 01274 588831. Please visit their Facebook page for up to date information.
- Café West in Allerton are operating a cooked meal delivery service to local families and their number is 01274 488499. They hope to be able to deliver enough meals to last families five days. However, they are in need of donations of store foods, for example, tins, packets, flour etc. and desperately need food containers if anyone is able to help.
- The Salvation Army in Keighley will be continuing to provide food parcels. From this coming week they will be operating a delivery service instead of parcels being collected. If you are a vulnerable family and would like to use this service please email the academy with details on email@example.com and we will then refer the family. This service works on a referral process.
All of these organisations will be in need of donations of food and other items, as will all the usual foodbanks, even more than they usually are so if you are able to help or spread the word then please do so.
The websites below may also be of some help if you are struggling financially.
With schools being closed, it is likely there will be some children accessing the internet with more unsupervised access than usual. As a parent/carer please can you visit the www.thinkuknow.co.uk website as it has advice and support for children, young people, parents and professionals. As well as providing details on how to report concerns around online abuse or grooming. Click here to view their helpsheet on how to keep your children safe online while they are off school.
