When you have no financial safety net, a sudden crisis, such as bereavement, benefit delay, redundancy or illness, can leave you unable to feed yourself or your family.. Such situations can quickly deteriorate, leading to relationship breakdown, house repossession or worse. Penryn and Falmouth Foodbank works to support people who find themselves on the edge of disaster.
How to get help
If you need help from our foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.
The most important step is to get a foodbank voucher.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies we work with include: Citizens Advice, housing support officers, children’s centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities.
1. Get in touch with us.
If you call or email our foodbank we can talk through your situation and put you in touch with a relevant local agency.
2. Arrange a visit to the referral agency.
They will discuss your situation and supply you with a foodbank voucher where appropriate.
3. Bring your foodbank voucher to your nearest foodbank centre.
We are open for clients on Mondays between 11am and 1pm and on Thursdays from 2pm until 4pm. We do not deliver at the moment, however there are other community groups who are delivering on our behalf if the need arises, we do not currently have an e-referral system.
An exhibition of drawings from Falmouth’s streets – created over a 24-hour period from noon 2nd to noon 3rd October 2020 – by artists, students, hobbyists and amateurs who love to draw. Funds raised go toward St Petrocs’ important work with Cornwall’s street homeless.
The question posed by title of this exhibition, which shows work from the 3rd annual StreetDraw24 held here in Falmouth, recognises that while most of us are happy to be back on the streets post-lockdown, for those without secure housing this is a difficult time.
Through the drawing event itself and through this exhibition, StreetDraw24 wants to raise awareness of the difficulty for the rising number of homeless here in Cornwall and for organisations like St Petrocs who support them.
Those who have been affected by suicide are invited to drop in to Truro Cathedral for a moment of quiet reflection or to light a candle in memory of someone who has died.
It is not possible this year, due to Covid-19, to hold the annual service for people affected by suicide. Instead, the Suicide Liaison Service has been invited to provide an opportunity at Truro Cathedral on World Suicide Prevention Day to invite those who are impacted by suicide to visit for a quiet moment of reflection, light a candle, or talk with a member of Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s Chaplaincy Team, or the Suicide Liaison Service, or a cathedral Chaplain – all who will be available at times throughout the day. We very much look forward to seeing you on the 10th. All are welcome, of all faiths or none.
If you are not able to visit the cathedral, you can light a virtual candle in remembrance by clicking the ‘Light a Virtual Candle’ link on the homepage of the cathedral’s website: www.trurocathedral.org.uk.
This new CAP Debt Centre is run in partnership with St Budock Parish Church. The Debt Coach at Falmouth & Penryn Debt Centre is Jacqui Bennett, Debt Centre Manager. Jacqui writes:
11 August 2020
Thank you for your prayers during my training with Christians Against Poverty over the last month. It was a great experience and I have to say that the more I learn about CAP and the way in which they work, the more impressed I become. It is a great privilege to be a part of the CAP family.
The training ended on Friday evening with a blessing which was a great event.
And – Now we are live!
The next priorities are:
to begin contacting various referral agencies like the Job Centre, Foodbank, Citizens Advice and other local charities etc. If you know of any local agencies that may be willing to work alongside CAP please do let me know.
to train volunteers; so, if you have already volunteered to be involved, I will be in touch soon.
If you haven’t volunteered yet, but would like to, please let me know. There are various ways in which you can work with us including:
Befriending a client
praying for urgent needs sent via text/email
making meals/cakes to take to a client
helping with shopping
plus many more. Please get in touch for more information.
We do need to raise funds so that we can continue to bless people in this way, so if you can think of any fund raising events we could do, especially in these times of social distancing please let us know. Alternatively, if you are able, you could make a regular payment by standing order to Budock Church CAP fund.
For your prayers
Please pray that the referral agencies I contact will be responsive to the idea of referring people to CAP and helping them to become debt free.
But mainly, please pray for the people we will be reaching out to, that they might find relief from their debts and find a new life in Jesus. This is core to all that Christians Against Poverty do.
The FPCT Annual Report 2019-20 is now available following approval at the AGM on 22 July. The 44-page report provides a wealth of detail on the work in some two dozen areas of mission in which local churches engage together. It includes the final version of a major piece of work last year on Our Vision and Purpose, Ways and Means Under God – although the pandemic will mean immediately revisiting that in the light of newly changed priorities!
The report is available online here; printed copies will be available later when we have suitable means of distributing them! ‘Pre-order’ by email and we will get them to you as soon as possible.
