About


 
Welcome to Southampton Social Aid Group.


Southampton Social Aid Group (SSAG) is a co-operative created for the benefit of the people of Southampton. A co-operative is a members owned structure all of whom have voting rights in how the service is run. All members can be involved in the running of the cooperative.

  • SSAG will be shaped by its members and our aim is to be responsive to the needs of our members and the community.
  • SSAG aims to be able to offer a range of services to the community. Our first service is our Food Club. We hope to build on this service according to the changing needs of the community.
  • SSAG is based on the principles of solidarity not charity, participation not just consultation.
 
 For a weekly fee of £3.50 one member of a household can become a member of our Food Club. Each member can choose 10 items of shopping a week worth approximately £15 from our available selection of food and household goods. Items vary week to week and include fresh fruit and vegetables, store cupboard essentials, toiletries and household items.
