Where to find support

Right now, the priority is keeping people safe and strong. We are here to help you access the support that’s needed for you and the people around you.

The government has set up a central register for anyone who needs extra support to make sure they get help to access food, medicine and other essentials. For our area this is the Gloucestershire Community Help Hub

Also, visit Gloucestershire Funders – a new collaboration between eight foundations and organisations who can provide funding for charities, groups and activities, in Gloucestershire. We have come together during the COVID-19 pandemic to support the county.

Many of us need extra support at the moment, for a range of reasons. We may also have family members and neighbours who need extra support too. Here’s where to add yourself or someone you know to the list to get support: 

Or call the Gloucestershire Community Help Hub on 01452 583519 and someone will help you with this.
