If you’re unable to comfortably buy or access food, you might be able to get help from a food bank, community pantry or other local initiative in Hampshire.

These organisations often have criteria you must meet in order to access the food, and many require a referral from another supporting organisation.

The Hitting the Cold Spots team can help you identify whether you might be eligible for support from a Food Bank.

Here are some useful links to help you get started.

Hampshire County Council offers a wide level of support for anyone struggling with their mental health.

The Mental Wellbeing Hampshire programme is a partnership of organisations all working to support those who need it. The service includes looking after yourself, children and young people, bereavement and many other topics.

There are many groups, clubs and organisations across Hampshire that welcome new members and offer a friendly space to talk and take part in small activities such as games and crafts.

Your local authority can help you find some groups that match your interests and hobbies.
