Helping the community

Want to help your community during the coronavirus situation?

Check in on vulnerable family, friends and neighbours. Just helping them with their shopping and checking they have everything they need can make a huge difference.

Know someone self-isolating?

Call or text them to check they are okay.

Volunteer with the community response

We’re asking anyone who isn’t self-isolating and may be able to spare some time to help the community to get in contact with our partners at The Ark so that we can prepare for every eventuality.

The Ark is building a list of people across the borough who may be willing to help out should their neighbours need some extra support.

Find out more and sign up at The Ark or call 01344 266911.
