TWO LOCAL organisations are teaming up to provide support for families in need.

Bridport Round Table is partnering up with the West Dorset Family Partnership Team, based at the Bridport Children's Centre, to provide emergency support for families in need as many continue to struggle as a result of the pandemic.

The round table is allocating £2,000 to support one off, urgent purchases of items such as food, clothes, homeware and more, which many families are in desperate need of.

Going forward, the family partnership team will continue their work in supporting local families, highlighting instances to the round table where they are able to make a material difference.

A spokesman for Bridport Round Table said: "The round table is allocating £2,000 to support urgent purchases of items for families in need at this difficult time.

"Whilst it may not be life changing, we do hope that it can take some of the pressure of those who need help the most.

"This is all possible due to the support the local community provides, whether by attending round table events, or by generously donating to our online fundraising efforts. So thank you."
