Accessing the foodbank requires obtaining a referral form through a local agency in Carlisle. If you maintain consistent contact with a Referral Agency like the Citizens' Advice Bureau, Law Centre, Unity, or Gateway, your assigned support worker will make the necessary referral if they determine your eligibility. In the absence of a designated care worker, reaching out to Local Welfare Assistance at 01228 221100 is advised. The agency will engage in a discussion about your circumstances and, if deemed suitable, provide you with a foodbank voucher.
The foodbank operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
