• Cash First Referral Leaflets

    Find locally available advice and cash first support options

    About the Project

    'Worrying About Money?' cash first referral leaflets are co-designed as straightforward resources for people facing financial crisis, and anyone supporting them, to quickly see available advice and cash first support options and which local agencies are best placed to help. The design of the leaflets is based on learning from Scotland's A Menu for Change project.


    IFAN is currently working with key stakeholders in numerous local authorities across the UK to co-develop and share these cash first resources as widely as possible. The aim of this work is to reduce the need for emergency food aid by helping people access any existing financial entitlements and advice on income maximisation as a cash first response to food insecurity.

  • Feedback on the cash first referral leaflets


    “This is a great piece of joint work and supplements all the other work that has been going on to make sure people are aware of all the support that is available to them and who to contact to get it...the guide is concise and clearly laid out with all the details and information on support available across the Highlands in the one place."


    Councillor Alasdair Christie, Deputy Leader of Highland Council


    Feedback on our co-developed referral leaflets


    "This leaflet is absolutely brilliant! Just what we've been looking for... all the information and useful numbers in the one leaflet. It's so easy to read as well. A great piece of work. We'll start distributing it next week in our food parcels."

    Braes Storehouse Food Bank

    Feedback on our co-developed referral leaflets


    "Thank you for the leaflet you have compiled. It is excellent and will be of good use to us when we deliver our food packs to houses."


    Storehouse Bo'ness

    Feedback on our co-developed referral leaflets


    "How exciting to receive them! They look great and really very clear to follow."


    East Berwickshire Foodbank

    Feedback on our co-developed referral leaflets


    "The new ‘Worrying About Money?’ leaflet for Shropshire has been really well received, people have told us it is straight forward and easy to use. We’re so pleased to be able to offer people this resource. The leaflet has really helped to empower local groups and individuals to know what cash-first support options are available in Shropshire."

    Sophie Padgett, Shropshire Food Poverty Alliance Coordinator

    Feedback on our co-developed referral leaflets


    "An important tool to tackling poverty in our city. Whilst food parcels remain an important, and often essential provision at a time of crisis, they aren’t dealing with the root causes of financial insecurity and are therefore just a temporary fix. Plymouth has many excellent services available for anyone with financial concerns, and this leaflet is a simple and easy to use resource to help agencies and volunteers offer appropriate assistance.”
    Ayshea Cross, Plymouth Food Aid Network Coordinator
