If you have been without proper housing for some time, and are now able to move into
somewhere, there are possible problems even if you now have a roof. The flat or house
you are moving into may well be partially equipped with the usual kitchen things,
but you and yours still need to eat! As a short term help while you get sorted out
we have a scheme in Louth called the “Community Larder”.
This scheme can give you a small supply of non-perishable foods such as tins and
packets - enough to keep you going for a couple of days. As well, there are vouchers
which can be exchanged for perishables - milk and bread and the like - at the Co-op
store in Eastgate, Louth, and similar vouchers for greengroceries.
If any of these possibilities would help, please ask your ELDC support worker (if
you are in touch with one), or the Team Parish Outreach Worker at Trinity Centre, Eastgate, or ring
LDHH on 07717 854889.
