Running alongside Edinburgh City Mission's food bank, the Food Crisis Prevention Project offers free, confidential, independent and impartial advice on a range of issues including benefits, money, debt, housing and employment.

The project can empower you to maximise your income, budget effectively and avoid future financial crises.

The service is open to anyone attending the food bank premises, even those ineligible for a food parcel.
