Self Referral

We are very pleased to now be able to accept Self Referrals to Dunbar Foodshare, allowing the people of Dunbar and surrounding areas to access the foodbank and wider support that we can offer, as & when they feel they need it.

There are many reasons why someone may find themselves in the position of needing to access a food and basics bank, including (but not exclusively); poor mental health, unemployment, poor physical health, homelessness, addiction, difficulties with debt & budgeting, domestic abuse, welfare payment delays, economic hardship, family breakdown, bereavement...

Often people will know of what benefit the use of a foodbank could bring them but aren't yet receiving the support from the usual bodies who would refer them to us (eg. doctors, social workers, schools...). Self Referral allows people to make a choice and come to us directly, when they are ready.
