NEW FOREST BASICS BANK
t
he History..........

New Forest Basics Bank was set up in 2004 under Churches Together in Lymington and Pennington to help people in need to feed themselves and their families as a stopgap while more permanent solutions can be found.  The Basics Bank responds to referrals from social work agencies, including the Citizen's Advice Bureaux, County Council services for adults and children, job centres, drug and alcohol advisory services, social workers, churches, schools and many others.
The area now includes most of New Forest District, except where needs are met by other local food banks such as Ringwood or the Waterside.

Clients referred have a voucher which is exchanged for parcels, either collected from the office or delivered by a team of volunteer drivers.
New Forest Basics Bank is now an independent charity registered number 1150170.  We operate from The Cabin behind the Lymington United Reformed Church, High Street, Lymington.  There is close working relationship between the URC and the Basics Bank.

New Forest Basics Bank is open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
from 10am to 12 Noon
