BCT is passionate about helping those at home as well as those worldwide. There are approximately 181,000 charities within England and Wales¹ that need ongoing support that are doing great things at a local level. BCT is very proud to be a part of the amazing work that these UK Charities facilitate.
One example of such a charity is Sufra, a community food bank and kitchen in North West London, based in the London Borough of Brent and accessible to residents in the surrounding boroughs of Harrow and Ealing. They provide essential services: a food bank providing a weekly drop in where low income families can collect a free parcel containing food and essentials through a voucher system. In the future the charity aspires to provide a subsidised kitchen where families and individuals are invited to share a freshly cooked meal for a subsidised charge; and provide medical and welfare support with the services of volunteer professionals providing medical screening, and also assistance with employment and referrals to services.
Additionally BCT works with other partners in London to provide Winter Warmer Packs in London, Birmingham and Manchester for the homeless. During the cold months of the year these packs provide essentials for people to survive the cold weather and create a communication platform for those people to seek assistance.
