FIND Quiz – June 9th, 2018

This year our fun quiz night will be on Saturday 9th June. More details to follow soon!

FIND 50 Lifeline Appeal

FIND has to move to new premises later this year (2018) as our current building will no longer be available. We have identified a suitable location but now need to fund the renovation and refurbishment so we can operate from there. FIND is looking for 50 different workplaces, businesses, schools or individuls to each raise at least £2,000 to meet or taget of £100,000 for this major project. More Information

Volunteers and Drivers Urgently Needed

We urgently need drivers who can help deliver food parcels and other supplies on Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoons. If you can spare one or two days a month, and ideally if you have access to a vehicle, please get in touch. Our delivery teams work in pairs for logistic and safety reasons.

Food-bankEmergency assistance to families and individuals

Families in Need (FIND) Ipswich is a registered charity providing emergency assistance to families or individuals affected by poverty or dispossession in Ipswich and the surrounding area. In the community, we have adults who simply exist from one day to the next and who are desperate for help, including youngsters living on low incomes without life or budgeting skills trying to find ways to feed, clothe and house themselves. 2015 has been, and 2016 continues to be, a desperate year for hundreds of people in our area. Learn more about FIND.

Why the community needs us

We help those that are deprived of a minimum standard of living, be they single, families, lone parents, children, elderly, sick, disabled or homeless. We offer, free of charge, food, household items, furniture, nursery equipment and nappies, beds and bedding and, when available, cookers, washing machines and refrigerators. When appropriate this includes personal support too.
