Material aid is the practical assistance given to people in need. It includes food services, parcels and vouchers, toiletries, bedding, transport vouchers, holiday hampers. Sometimes the agency will be able to help with the payment of bills or medications when the funds are available but it’s usually best to call ahead to see what is available and to make an appointment.
