Help over the holidays
Don't struggle over the Christmas holidays for food. Help is at hand.
Bucks County Council has a dedicated Helping Hand phone line for households worried about food or warmth over the winter season. They will ask questions about your circumstances so that they can provide the best advice and help. They can direct you to agencies and organisations who can offer help and support and may offer direct support with food, energy and water bills or other essentials.
You can contact them on: 01296 531 151
(Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5:30pm, Friday, 9am to 5pm. The support line is closed on Christmas day, Boxing Day, Monday 28 December and New Year’s Day. In an emergency, you can contact the out of hours team on 0800 999 7677.)
You can also use the Bucks Family Information Service online database www.bucksfamilyinfo.org to find your nearest foodbank.
