The Trussell Trust

The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of food banks that provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

The Trussell Trust have been part of the journey of Feeding Gloucestershire since 2021, with Phil Coysh, Area Manager for the Trussell Trust for Gloucestershire, Bristol and North Somerset, sitting on our Network Board.

In 2022 Feeding Gloucestershire worked alongside Phil to bring the Independent Food Aid Network’s ‘Worrying About Money?’ cash first referral leaflets to Gloucestershire, with the roll out of the leaflet in Stroud and the Cotswolds, and now our project coordinator is coordinating the work to roll out the leaflets in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, and the Forest of Dean, this work will be completed in spring 2023
