Voucher Distribution

Frontline care agencies are able to issue vouchers to their clients in need. Across Medway more than 100 care and advice agencies have registered with us, agencies such as Citizens Advice Bureau, Medway Housing, Social Service teams, Health Centres, Children's Centres, schools and more. Care, support and advice services are welcome to contact us to find out how they can register to issue vouchers to the families and individuals they know to be in need.
