Proudly supported by


Meet Paula

“My name is Paula. I live in London with my three children Alejandro, Ingrid, and Xavier. I lost my job and everything has been so much harder since the coronavirus pandemic began. After paying for rent and bills, I have just £4.30 left for food and nappies for the rest of the month. During the first lockdown, I didn’t manage to eat anything for almost three days. But I always make sure there’s enough for my children. I rely on weekly food parcels from Sufra food bank. When I found Sufra, everything got better. They gave me hope.”

By donating to Global’s Make Some Noise, you can help more charities like Sufra NW London provide food and support to families like Paula’s. Give today.

Meet Lauren

“My name is Lauren and I live with my husband David and my two boys, Danny and Finley. My 2-year-old, Finley, has a rare genetic condition which means he needs a huge amount of support, including through the night. We change Finley’s physical position regularly because he isn’t able to move himself. I have been so anxious about coronavirus because Finley is very vulnerable. A nurse funded by The Pepper Foundation comes to our home for three hours a week. This time is precious as it means David and I can spend some quality time with Finley’s older brother, Danny. The support from The Pepper Foundation and the nurses is incredible. They are always there, day or night, to give us advice or check on Finley when we need them.”

Meet Andy

“My name is Andy, two years ago my life fell apart. I was a victim of domestic violence and suddenly found myself without a job, house, car and family. I feared for my life so I had to leave my home town and started living on the streets as well as sleeping on people's sofas. My mental health deteriorated and I had to go through tough divorce proceedings, I was close to ending my life. But then I found SPEAR and they have helped me turn my life around. Last month I moved from a hostel into my own home. I still can’t believe it! This would not have been possible without them. This time of year will be difficult, because it’s a reminder of when my world came crashing down. But SPEAR is there to help me through the tough days.”

Meet Anisha

“My name is Anisha, I live with my three children, Kayezhontaye, Jervontaye, and Cavari. I have a disability and my son also has a disability and needs a lot of care. My eldest and youngest look after us. This makes day-to-day life very challenging for my family, but Enfield Carers Centre has been a lifeline. They provide mental health support for my children, as well as regular activities with other young carers. During the first lockdown, they provided us with food parcels when we had to shield. We've been relying on their support since 2014, they are like family to us.”

Meet Tom

“My name is Tom and I have a visual impairment. A world with limited sight can be a lonely place, but I have Spadework. Me and my guide dog Frankie have been going there for nearly 13 years. I love it because it keeps me busy, learning new skills and socialising. I’ve had lots of laughs over the years and made lots of friends. This year has been hard because I can’t go along to spend time with my friends. Despite the challenges, Spadework has kept us all in touch with weekly virtual sessions, and by phoning me to check in on how I am doing. We are like a family.”
