Why people use food banks

Citizens Advice South Warwickshire is a key distributor of food bank vouchers on behalf of the many food banks that operate in both Warwick and Stratford on Avon Districts. This gives us a unique insight into the circumstances that lead people to require a food voucher from us.

For two years in a row, the Research and Campaigns Team based in our Leamington office have complied a list of the types of clients who accessed food vouchers in Warwick District in specific periods during 2014/15 and 2015/16.

The reports look at their case records, they analyse their profiles and examine the circumstances that led them to require a food voucher from Citizens Advice in the first place.
