Please find below information that we have put together here at Southgate School which we hope you will find of help.
During this uncertain time with the coronavirus crisis, through no fault of our own, many of us may find ourselves experiencing financial difficulties and may need extra support.
Food banks help local families and individuals in crisis with food, toiletries and other essential items. Many food banks will make up food parcels that will last a family on average a week. This will take into account how many members are in the family, dietary requirements and what cooking facilities the family have.
Families cannot self-refer and this must be done by an external agency. School staff are able to make a referral on behalf of a family.
If your family are experiencing crisis and you are needing additional support from a local food bank, please contact school on the email: email@example.com
After you have emailed school a member of staff will be in touch.
We’ve opened a new dedicated helpline as part of our Covid-19 Community Response.
We’re working alongside our citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities over the coming weeks. We’re working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations through our partners at Volunteering Kirklees (part of Third Sector Leaders).
Together we’ve developed a co-ordinated Community Response, including a Kirklees Council helpline and online forms that anyone can use to either request help, or to offer support to others. Our response teams in local places will be matching requests for help with offers of support, so that we can work together to support the most vunerable in our communities.
How to request or offer support:
Please let us know about the things you (or someone who you are concerned about) need help with. You can also tell us how you (or your organisation) can support others.
