Capital for Common Good

City institutions responding to the growing need for emergency support in the face of the COVID-19 crisis.

The Covid-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected people who are already struggling to keep their heads above water. Nearly two in three (65%) people, who were employed prior to the Covid-19 crisis, have experienced reduced hours, reduced earnings and/or been furloughed or lost their job; while foodbank usage has increased exponentially since the start of the pandemic Those who are accessing food banks have an average weekly income of just £50 after housing costs. 

As the furlough scheme ends, there is an increasing and desperate need for practical financial help and emergency food supplies, to help people who don’t have enough to get by keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. With support, we can help prevent people becoming locked into a vicious cycle of debt and poverty.

How are we helping?

People accessing food banks in the Trussell Trust’s network will be referred to Turn2us for a grant and wider holistic support to address the underlying cause of crisis, alongside an emergency food parcel.

Turn2us will provide an emergency grant of £1,000 (two instalments of £500), alongside emotional and practical support, so people can go on to thrive and contribute to the economy.
