Returning to College

We are looking forward to having you back in college. The Government has asked that each student receives 3 Covid tests at college in the next couple of weeks. Obviously with a large number of students this will take us a short while to achieve, please bear with us you will receive a letter with your appointment soon.

Below you will find the latest database with information on Trussell Trust foodbanks, independent foodbanks and pantries, community cafes and cooked food providers, on street food outreach and additional (non food related) support.

This resource gives contact information about alternative support and services, but it is strongly recommended that you contact the foodbank/group first to check if they are currently offering their food provision, and if so, how to access these.
