Support available for Bromley Borough Residents

21st April 2020

We realise during this challenging time many will need additional support and therefore thought it would be good to share with you what we know to be available in our Bromley Borough for residents.

Bromley Borough Foodbank provides emergency food supplies for those who are dealing with a financial crisis or locked in poverty. Our voucher scheme partnership with referral agencies enables us to provide better support as we work together to increase our understanding of those who come to us in need. As we gather information of each person’s circumstances, we can signpost to other agencies to help deal with the struggles currently being faced and provide solutions to help reduce the risk of being a victim of hunger in the UK and requiring our services further.

Referral agencies referring someone should complete an evoucher and send to [email protected]

For those who do not meet our criteria, extra support during this time is still available, these are some of the options we know about:

COVID-19 Helpline
The government has provided a national coronavirus helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 relating to education and children’s social care. Parents, staff, and young people can contact this helpline as follows:
Phone – 0800 046 8687
Opening hours – 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)
