COVID 19 (CORONAVIRUS) - Support for voluntary groups, social enterprises and communities

This is a challenging time for all of us, as many VCSE groups, services and activities are having to stop, and we have to find new ways of working to support our service users.

We have set up a new website to support the local community response:

The Development Team are here to answer any questions or concerns you have, whether related to Covid 19 or not – or even if you are feeling isolated or anxious in your role and want to connect with someone. This will be provided by email or phone. We may not always have the answers to questions but we can find out or put you in touch with people who do.
