This is an extremely testing time. Our charity needs support to ensure we can continue deliver our services, at the current rate, to those that are in the greatest need during this crisis.

Since the start of COVID-19, things have been extremely busy here at First Love. We have seen more than a 900% increase in individuals requiring our support (compared to this time last year) – a demand that continues to grow by the week.

The need in the borough has changed in the last few months – with people losing their jobs as a result of the pandemic, and those living in a cycle of crisis being pushed further below the breadline – more people than ever before are in need of First Love.

As a result of the current crisis, we are now more than ever before a vital resource to the public – putting us right on the frontline.

The biggest change to our operations was moving away from our face to face twice-weekly held crisis sessions (where we provide access to holistic support, welfare rights advice and emergency food support) to operating this support over the phone, increasing this element of service to 5 days a week instead of 2, with food being delivered straight from our warehouse right to the recipient’s door.

This new way of delivering our services comes with increased costs. Your donations are allowing us to continue scaling through this pandemic. 

First Love is a charity run on public donations and corporate funding alone. Without you this would not be possible.

Thank you and stay safe,

First Love
