We are delighted to bring you GroceryAid’s Impact Report for 2022-23, which highlights the vital role we played as a lifeline for thousands of colleagues across the sector.
Last year, we experienced a 44% increase in incidents of colleague support compared to the previous year. The Charity spent £5.6 million supporting colleagues, including £642,000 awarded in School Essentials Grants which ensured more than 2, 340 children had the right equipment and clothing when they returned to school in September 2022.
The Charity’s free and confidential Helpline also received over 10,000 calls from colleagues which resulted in more than 5,000 in the moment counselling sessions with a BACP accredited counsellor. There was also a 14% increase in referrals for legal advice from Law Express and 1,282 Relate counselling sessions were delivered.
