Annual Report: April 2021 – March 2022

We are pleased to present our Annual Report covering the period April 2021-March 2022.

This report illustrates how Sufra NW London supported families struggling to make ends meet after the Covid-19 pandemic and just as the Cost of Living Crisis began to bite.

With a rundown of our three-year strategy for 2020-2023, we explore our work in relation to our mission and principles, whilst highlighting our plan to deliver a more holistic and impactful approach to food insecurity in the year ahead.

A quote from our director, Rajesh Makwana, BEM:

The pandemic left a permanent mark on Sufra and our guests: an expanded network of Food Banks and Community Kitchens; a larger team of dedicated volunteers; new digital infrastructure; the leadership role we now play in Brent in relation to food aid; and the renewed focus on campaigning for policy change are just some of the positives.

But we are also faced with a more challenging funding environment, unsustainable levels of demand and a lack of physical space in which to operate.

Our team of staff and volunteers are stretched thin on the ground and under immense pressures to support some of the most vulnerable people in London.

Despite these challenges, we achieved a huge amount this year – not least of which is supporting a total of 19,200 Food Bank recipients, which is nearly double our pre-pandemic figure of 10,582 in 2019-20.

Further information about our work can be found in our published annual accounts for the same period, which are available on the Charity Commission’s website here.
