The Wandsworth Covid Food Providers Group is made up of 30+ local charities, community and faith groups and the Council, who together, are supporting local residents with food and support during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Aaron Barbour, KLS Director, has been chairing the group since the first lockdown.
Residents might not be able to get food for a number of reasons including those who are vulnerable and self-isolating and who can’t physically get out to the shops; or those who are in financial hardship and cannot afford food. For whatever reason, if you need some help, then do get in touch with a local food support group.
The Group has also co-produced a ‘Worrying about Money?’ leaflet to help local people in Wandsworth facing financial crisis, and anyone supporting them, to quickly see available advice and cash first support options and which agencies are best placed to help.

About Katherine Low Settlement
Katherine Low Settlement is a much-loved, busy charity that has been at the heart of the community in Battersea, south-west London, since 1924.
With a few staff and a lot of volunteers, Katherine Low Settlement runs a range of its own popular community projects including educational courses and wellbeing activities. The charity supports children, young people and their families, older people, refugees and newly arrived communities of all genders, nationalities and religions.
The Katherine Low Settlement building in Battersea High Street, opened in 1924, is used for community activities and events, usually – until the arrival of Covid-19 – by over 500 people a week. Its rooms are available for hire at affordable rates.
Katherine Low Settlement is grateful for the funding received from supporters, trusts and foundations to enable the charity to continue to reduce poverty and isolation and bring Battersea together.
