COVID 19 RESPONSE UPDATE
The year 2020 has been a very different and difficult year for all due to the pandemic. Most people's worlds have been turned upside down. As we approach the Winter months the effects of the pandemic will be felt even more . More and more families will be in need of help due to job loss and pay cuts across the board.
There will definitely be a greater need for help with life essentials
Over the Summer months Streetwise were able to help buy and deliver Essential Food Parcels to families who needed extra support .
During Winter the need has been greater and the Winter Whispers Project has been delivering Essential Food Parcels to families in the Fylde who have benefited from extra support. We also be delivering Christmas Food Hampers and Christmas Presents to those who need.
During February 2021 Streetwise delivered packed lunch and breakfasts to the doors of children in need in the Fylde. 1500 meals left the centre during the week. Well done to our amazing group of volunteers !
There is no formal criteria needed in order to receive this support . If you are a family which is struggling due to the effects of the pandemic or you know of a family who would benefit from such a project please contact

Throughout the lockdown we provided one to one support and support for many families over online apps such as Zoom! Since restrictions have eased, we were able to provide various weekly activities throughout the Summer Holidays as well as a Free Food Distribution Service thanks to our Partnership with the Community Action Fund and Fylde Borough Council.
