Our Research

Our research demonstrates the persistence of hunger in 21st century Britain.

We want to see an end to food poverty and therefore the need for Foodbanks in West Cheshire and beyond. Research, advocacy and campaigning can be mechanisms for change. 

 Whilst our purpose is to provide food for those in need, alongside this we have to be actively pursuing an end of need.

 In support of this mission, some of our volunteers have utilised their experience in research and social policy work to create a West Cheshire Food Bank Research and Advisory team.

The team supports the Foodbank in making decisions with clear, relevant and timely data to hand, developing a shared understanding of key trends at West Cheshire Food Bank, and shaping new initiatives. It also works to connect and campaign at the local and national level. One of our key aims is to act as a platform for sharing the voices of those experiencing poverty. 

We respond to internal and external requests for data and analysis, including reports and guest articles and blogs. 

If you would like to contact the team please email them using research@westcheshire.foodbank.org.uk
