Local support

London Riverside Foodbank Appeal

Jon Cruddas MP has been in touch with The London Riverside Church, Parsloes Avenue, Dagenham, RM9 5PT.

The church has been of great support to many of Jon’s constituents over the years. They run several community groups as well as operating a Baby Bank and “Store City”- their foodbank.

There are currently some items for the foodbank that would be particularly welcomed:

Rainham Foodbank: More Than Food

Jon Cruddas MP was recently contacted by Rainham Foodbank in regard to their “More Than Food” service. Rainham Foodbank is part of Trussell Trust’s UK wide network of over 460 foodbanks, working to tackle food poverty and hunger across the UK.

They are a Christian charity that partner with local communities, providing non-judgemental help to people in crisis. They provide at least 3 days food for people in emergency and crisis and a number of frontline care professionals including GP’s, schools and Helplines can refer individuals.

The Sycamore Trust UK- Empowering Parents Empowering Communities

Jon Cruddas MP was recently contacted by the Sycamore Trust. The Sycamore Trust is a charity based in Barking and Dagenham which supports parents, carers and individuals for whom Autistic Spectrum Disorders and/or Learning Difficulties are part of everyday life.
