Basics Bank

Basics Bank is a project of Youth and Families Matter, in partnership with Southampton City Mission. Through this initiative we look to support families practically by providing emergency groceries.

Food is available to families who are struggling financially, on presentation of a voucher. Vouchers are available to agencies for distribution. Agencies include... Citizens Advice Bureau, Adult & Children's Services, Housing Associations, Probation, Colleges, Youth Support Services etc.

"I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you so much for the wonderful hamper you all provided for one of the families we are involved with. I am certain it was of great assistance to them."
Behaviour Support Team.

If you would like to support basics bank by providing food to go in the food parcels for families in Totton, please deliver to Testwood Baptist Church.

The parcels are made up of tins of meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, puddings, pasta, rice, custard, UHT milk, tea, coffee, juice, pasta sauce, cereals, biscuits, baked beans, soup. Thank you for your support.
