This media coverage has highlighted the plight of young people in our city facing debt crisis due to sanctions imposed by job centres.

Talent Match young person Kyle Ayres was featured speaking to This Morning presenter Michael Underwood. He explained about why he had to use the food bank and how, with Talent Match support, he is starting a training programme with Carrillion Construction in the new year.

Our food bank is open every Wednesday from 1pm – 3pm and next week it will be open at the same time on Monday 21st. The food bank will then be open again 6th January 2016.
