There is an increasing demand for our support from existing clients and from a growing number of new callers in Ferns and its environs. Much of the demand is centred on requests for food vouchers, fuel support – coal and oil, electricity, etc. An integral part of our work is advising clients on where to seek assistance when a request is outside the remit of SVP (i.e. MABS, Community Welfare Officer, etc).
To enable the Ferns Conference to increase our support to existing clients and to facilitate new clients. Additional funds will be needed especially this particular year with the expected growth in demand due to the unprecedented financial pressures currently, and expected, on households.
