The Trussell Trust

Our goal is a fairer society where nobody wonders where their next meal is coming from or must rely on the kindness of their community in order to put food on their table. We’ll be doing this in three ways: In Changing Communities, we’ll be working with food banks to reduce the need for their services locally, helping people to access targeted support that addresses the underlying reason for their crisis. In Changing Policy, we’ll be working alongside food banks and partners to provide stronger evidence of the drivers of extreme poverty (or ‘destitution’) and pushing for positive solutions that will help tackle these. In Changing Minds, we’ll be increasing levels of understanding and empathy amongst the general public, locally and UK-wide, to build a movement that is willing to take action to create a just and compassionate society without the need for food banks.

125 lives are lost every week to suicide. And 75% of all UK suicides are male. We exist to change this. We do it by provoking conversation, running life-saving services, and bringing people together so they reject living miserably, get help when they need it and don’t die by suicide.
