Tod Support (Previously Todmorden Emergency Support) now has a website www.todsupport.org.uk and provides help when you need it for people living in Todmorden who are in need.
If you are struggling with the cost of living and can’t afford, for example, to replace a broken cooker or buy the children new shoes, Tod Support is here to help. Tod Support distributes funds from two charities, Todmorden War Memorial Fund and Abraham Ormerod Trust.
Each request is considered in terms of what difference the support would make. Needs will differ from individual to individual and may include help with food and energy costs to warm bedding, from a cooker to home essentials, school uniform to a bed or baby’s cot.
