Everton in the Community’s Blue Family Universal Campaign

 Everton in the Community- BFU service provides families who are struggling through this pandemic with a maximum of four lots of support. If a family meet our criteria, we can provide them with a food box on next day delivery. Each food box contains enough food to feed a small family for a week – with plenty of meat and fresh goods. Hopefully as the rate of community transition decreases we will also be able to complete fuel top ups for families too (which we have been doing throughout the pandemic). We aren’t restricted by geographical areas and are able to help right across Merseyside. Indeed, to date we have helped families across all of the Merseyside boroughs, from the Wirral to Halton and Southport.

 To receive our support all someone needs to do is complete the following referral form and we will contact them on the next working day. People can complete the form themselves, or someone else (e.g. a member of staff, a friend, a neighbour, a family member) can complete the form on their behalf. Since March 2020 we have received over 3,600 referrals have provided families with over 100,000 meals.
