Foodbanks and other support


Foodbanks and local charities are seeing an increasing number of people turn to them and can really help put a meal on the table when you need it most. Some offer further support with things like white goods for the home, fuel vouchers and clothing.

Helpful apps for your phone

If you have a smart phone, there are a few apps that can help you stretch your budget that little bit further, with discounted or free food, and price comparisons on fuel. Here are a few of the best:



OLIO connects neighbours with each other and with local businesses, so extra food can be shared and not thrown away. This could be food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from your baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away. For your convenience, OLIO can also be used for non-food household items too. For more information go to or visit the app store on your phone.



TOO GOOD TO GO is another anti-food waste app which lets you rescue delicious, unsold food from businesses to save it from going to waste. For more information go to: or visit the app store on your phone.



There’s no free fuel here, but this helpful app does let you know the prices of fuel in your area so you can find the cheapest! Go to or download the app.
