Bristol estate EMERGENCY food


Due to the easing of Government lockdown restrictions, we have phased down services at the Bristol Estate Emergency Food Hub which now hosts a food project called Flavour (this project is supported by Feedback/FareShare/Brighton & Hove Food Partnership) and will be at the hub until Feb 2021. You can read more about the project here

This decision has been made in the knowledge that a wide support network is now available to support our residents and that in the event of Tier 3  restrictions, we will reopen services at Bristol Estate too - updates will be posted on the website, social media and in the Due East newsletter.


BHCC Central Community Hub is the central contact point for all services including food referrals, benefits, shopping, prescriptions, housing, energy advice, health, wellbeing, and befriending services.

You can request help online.
