Telford Crisis Support to receive ongoing support from Telford & Wrekin Council

We are pleased to announce that Telford Crisis Support has secured £33,000 a year funding from Telford & Wrekin Council for six years (until 2023)

The support from Telford & Wrekin council will enable us to provide support from our three sites in Leegomery, Newport and Woodside, and to distribute parcels to those in need in the community. Whether it’s from Oakenagtes to Overdale, Coalport to Crudgintgon, there’s not a single inch of Telford & Wrekin that we won’t cover.

No one need go without the basic essentials that they need to keep themselves and their families warm, fed, clean, clothed, warm and healthy.

Please support Telford Crisis Support

International Volunteer Day

We would just like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all of our volunteers for their continued hard work.

In 2017 alone, Telford Crisis Support volunteers have provided over 3000 emergency food parcels for those in need, and have collectively given over 2000 hours of their time!

We couldn’t do what we do without support from our volunteers.

Thank you!
