Boxes of Basics

how we operate

A box full of heart

Our charity received referrals by local professionals; including doctors, social workers, health visitors etc who sign-post our clients to our charity for crisis.

Our clients visit our charity and are warmly welcomed. They are received by one of our dedicated volunteers who offer both a listening ear as well as a BasicBox. We then refer our clients to other charities who can support them further out of poverty through financial literacy training, benefits advice or guidance etc.

Healthy Food

Our BasicBoxes contain one week's worth of nourishing food. 

Boxes are individually prepared according to our clients requirements,including baby formula for infants and special salt-free or sugar free food for elderly users.

Basic fruit & vag.

Many families in poverty resort to using their meagre funds to buy starchy food including pasta, bread and rice because these satisfy easily and are cheap.  However it is well-know that it is vital to include fruit and vegetables into the daily diet because these provide essential vitamins and minerals for good health.  Our BasicBoxes include a selection of fruits and vegetables which our clients are extremely grateful for.

Home delivery

We provide an extra home-delivery service for elderly clients and other vulnerable users.
