Community Services

Duffryn Community link has a history of working with partners to provide the best opportunities and support for the community. We will continue to work with other organisations to provide a wide range of services and opportunities for our community.

Food Bank

The Forest Family Centre Foodbank is operated in partnership with Kings Church and Fare Share. The foodbank is run by local residents every Wednesday 2pm to 3pm from the Duffryn Community Centre.  This service is available to residents of Duffryn through a membership.  Due to limited resources membership must be restricted to 40 members at anyone time.   If you feel this could be a service that would be of use to yourself please contact us.
