Covid Community Support

We are immensly proud to be working alongside Basildon Council, Essex County Council to bring help where it is needed most at this time of community crisis, but this wouldn't be possible without our funders, so thank you!

Worrying about feeding our family and ourselves puts massive strain on our mental health and wellbeing, therefore we dedcided to set-up an emergency food bank serving our community members in need. Since March we worked with Basildon Borough Council, Peabody, and other foodbanks to ensure people living in Laindon, Basildon & Vange can regularily access a food bank. In addition, we also offer a one off parcel to anyone in need and can give you details of food banks in the surrounding areas of Billericay, Wickford, Pitsea and Lee Chaple. 

To access our service, visit the HAPPY Hub in Eastgate Shopping Centre Monday to Suday from 2pm to 4pm. For new attendees, we will ask you to complete  a registration form and hand to a member of the team. 


If you would like to volunteer please ring 01268 520785 (10am to 4pm). At them moment we are looking for delivery drivers, qualified Counsellors and fundraisers.
