Other Ways to Give

LifeCare runs a Food Pantry to help people who are doing it tough in our community.

Our Food Pantry is for people facing financial challenges and in regular need of assistance. It is run by members for members. You can access donated food and goods while helping out at the Food Pantry. It is also a space for you to meet new friends and enjoy a cup of coffee. We also offer one-off food and other emergency relief to those experiencing financial distress. Please leave donations at the collection point in the church foyer.
