Liz Firth is the development worker for Wellsprings Together Bradford.

Wellsprings Together Bradford is supporting and encouraging individuals, Christian organisations and churches of all denominations to understand and respond effectively to the issues of poverty and social justice for the wellbeing of local communities.

One of the things that this organisation does is host a developing a network of food banks, community pantry and hot food providers from across the Bradford District. They regularly bring together staff and volunteers of these initiatives to offer support, information about funding and opportunities to network.
