Zink Advice at High Peak Foodbank

High Peak Charity, The Zink Project has restarted face to face appointments for its advice service partly thanks to a grant from The Albert Gubay Foundation through Nottingham Catholic Diocese.  

Zink Advice is available to anyone who is having problems with welfare, finance or housing. It is primarily aimed at people who use High Peak Foodbank  at Zink and runs alongside Employability at Zink.

"Having an advice service and employability programmes in a foodbank makes good sense" said Paul Bohan, Zinkís Area Coordinator, "we are able to help resolve the issues that cause foodbank need, then help people get a job so the issues donít happen again".

High Peak Foodbank usually issue around 30 parcels a week but during the pandemic, this has risen to over 150 with volunteers from Buxton Street by Street and Chapel en le Frith Mutual Aid drafted in to help. Whilst families in need receive food parcels, Zinkís advice worker will help to resolve the issues that are causing them to struggle.

To do this, Zink has teamed up with six other projects and Nottingham Catholic Diocese in a regional partnership to head off hardship, hunger and homelessness. The dioceseís Catholic Partnership for Covid Emergency Relief shares funding from the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation. This is being used to fund Advice @Zink.
