Destitution Services

Through our partnerships with British Red Cross and the residents of Ella Street, ARKH is now able to provide low level destitution support to service users without UKBA support or during their transition from UKBA support to mainstream benefits or paid employment. This is confined to food parcels (dry food only) and the provision of clothes and shoes. We work with British Red Cross to provide an initial £10 food voucher in particularly serious cases. If there is a continuing need, subsequent food vouchers (which are restricted to one £10 voucher every two weeks) are issued by the British Red Cross and can be obtained from Princes Avenue Methodist Church on a Thursday morning.

All destitution services should be accessed during our regular drop-in hours, see
