Welcome to our Christmas Provision Page

In this page we will explain what our approach is to our Christmas Provision this year, give a brief outline of what we are planning to offer and how you can help us to make sure everyone has something to look forward to on Christmas day.
We are operating a multi-agency approach in two areas of East Lothian; PSG and Faside. The multi-agency approach is to ensure we do not duplicate support and makes sure we reach as many in our community as possible.
This year we will focus on both families and those who are vulnerable & socially isolated in the community.
We are currently accepting referrals from external organisations and partners in our local area. The deadline for submission of referrals to Jonathan is Tuesday 24th November. Please send completed forms to Jonathan (jonathan.sharples15@gmail.com). If you would like to find out more about the referral process, please contact Jonathan on the same email address as stated above.
Link to our referral form can be found here
