Your personalised action plan

Thanks for answering those questions. Here are your personalised recommendations for the help you could get.

1. Help with food and other living costs

Find a foodbank

There’s no shame in needing some help. There are thousands of people in the same boat right now, so please don’t hesitate getting in touch with your local foodbank if you need to.

If it’s a Trussell Trust foodbank, you’ll need to get a foodbank voucher first. You’ll just need to call your nearest foodbank and they can tell you how to get one (from your doctor, Citizens Advice and others).

Free school meals

If your children normally get free school meals, but aren’t at school at the moment, their school should have sorted out a way to continue providing meals. Either through a catering provider, food parcels or by issuing food vouchers that you can spend in a supermarket to buy food.

Schools can keep doing this even during the Easter holidays. So if yours hasn’t, send them to the government’s website FAQs.

Get a grant for costs

Some local charities provide grants if you’re having financial difficulties. You don’t have to pay them back usually, they’re just a payment to help you pay for food and other living costs.
