Constantly looking for new ways to support families with young children, our latest initiative is in response to a growing realisation, that struggling financially is not something that only affects families reliant on benefits, but is increasingly affecting working families. Low wages and part time working means that many more families are falling into the poverty trap.
Our community shop is an attempt to reduce the weekly shopping bill for local families, making the purchase of essential items less of a burden on the weekly budget.
Currently operating on a very small scale, we are attempting to raise £3000 by the 8th January 2018, to develop this idea further. Sufficient space, storage and stock should allow us to develop this into a social supermarket, benefiting many struggling families in our local community.
