    Hello @slunbb6

    Welcome to the community! :)

    Struggling to get the food you need must be really tough. We have a page on accessing free food and food banks, which you might find helpful to read. This includes some information on getting free or cheap food without a referral, as well as a with a referral. Have you spoken to your GP or local authority about the problems you've been having getting enough food?

    I would also suggest reaching out to Scope's Disability Energy Support they'll be able to advise on what help you could be able to access.

    If you run out of gas then contact your energy supplier and there maybe some help available for you. Food banks also give vouchers for pre payment meters.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
