Food and homeless Charity Organisations across Scotland are struggling to keep up with the Corona virus Pandemic. Suzie Rose from Shelter Organisation speaks for many when she says we are Flat out. And she added.
“Unfortunately our staffing situation has not improved during a global health emergency. My colleagues are under incredible strain just now”.
“As the Coronavirus pandemic unfolds in the Uk, our main priority is ensuring the safety of everyone needing help, someone volunteering their time, or someone making a donation“
This sentiment was echoed by Trussel Trust, stop hunger Uk.
Charity Organisations and food banks in Scotland are working to help combat the causes and effects of homelessness.
Everyone in Scotland should have a safe place to live and access to the support they need. Due to the last announcement by the Prime Minister on the 23rd of March, Food banks are facing some difficult situation about staying open and all the food banks will be affected by this current situation.
Trussel Trust will remain open and ready to support food banks in this COVID 19 situation, this is a statement made on their website.
The UK Government has announced a total lock down in the Country, and people must only go out if necessary.
