What we do
Here at Fair Frome we run a number of projects that work to achieve greater financial, educational, social and health equality for people living in Frome and the surrounding areas. We work in Frome with those people most in need of help, and offers practical support, such as ensuring that everyone has access to food, furniture, white goods and kitchen equipment.
We aim to provide practical and necessary support that focuses on the needs of the local community. Our work would not be possible without the constant support of businesses, community groups and individuals in Frome who enable us to help people when they need it most.
Our Food Bank is open 3 days a week providing food parcels to referred community members across Frome.
Our Furniture Bank helps source, install and repair furniture items such as white goods, carpet, beds and kitchen items for referred clients in the BA11 postcode area.
We run a number of other projects including our Food at Five hot meals service, our Holiday Hunger scheme and our Financial Assistance programme.
We are constantly using our feedback from food bank recipients and our clients to help shape and improve our projects here at Fair Frome.
