Within Telford Crisis Network there is a wealth of experience and understanding of the complex needs of individuals and families in acute financial crisis. Network agencies already provide a range of established and respected services including emergency food, emergency shelter, temporary accommodation and advice and support to resolve financial crises.
Examples of current Network members include Telford & The Wrekin CAB, Maninplace, the KIP project, YMCA, British Red Cross, Stay, Telford & Wrekin Council, Wrekin Housing Trust, Lyreco, TCAT, Dawley Christian Centre, Telford Christian Council, Madeley Parish Council, Stirchley & Brookside Parish Council, King Street Cafe in Wellington, Bournville Village Trust, Sanctuary Housing and Bromford Housing.
The partnership is led by Telford & The Wrekin Citizens Advice and meets regularly to report progress against its business plan.
Their first priority has been to address the food poverty issues in the borough and in April 2013 it officially opened Telford Foodbank.
