BARNABAS COMMUNITY PROJECTS
food bank PLUS combines Shrewsbury Food Bank, Barnabas Money Advice and 360 Platform for Life in one service that goes beyond just meeting the basic need to eat but offers help and encouragement to people as they take steps forward into a better future.
Having experienced redundancy in our family, I wanted to be able to help others who found themselves in financial difficulty. It is wonderful to be able to make, what seems like a desperate situation, become a manageable situation and restore peace and hope to individuals.
- WENDY, BMA ADVISOR
I enjoy sitting and listening to people, understanding where they are in their lives and discussing with them how they can move forward. It is exciting to see people grow in confidence as they come to realise that, instead of being overwhelmed with the prospect of looking for work, they are now in a much better position to apply for and get jobs. I love the fact that they can practice interview techniques; have their hair done; choose some pre-loved interview clothes (if needed) and be able to relax and chat over lunch, which is provided. It is so satisfying helping people get back into work!
- VICTORIA, 360 MENTOR
I first encountered 360 whilst at the food bank. I happened to mention to someone I needed to do a CV and was introduced to Karen, who invited me along. I found the whole experience enjoyable and interesting, and saw at first hand the people on the course with me gain confidence as the weeks progressed. To top it off I now have an outstanding CV. I recommend it to anyone from any walk of life who is seeking employment.
