​As we enter a new year and a further lockdown, we understand the anxieties, stresses and financial insecurities you may be facing.

If this is the case, please reach out to us as there is a huge amount of emotional and financial support available for everyone in our community. Our lessons from the past twelve months is that many people feel they don't want to make contact as there may be "someone worse off" who needs the help. We assure you there is help and support for everyone, regardless of circumstance.

We have also heard and seen the most terrific amount of community sharing and support - this has been truly humbling. If you are in a position where you wish to offer support to others, please contact the Hub where your position to help will be gratefully received.

If you are unable to leave your home, we have a group of volunteers that can collect shopping or prescriptions.

Please note: we can only do a weekly shop for essential items only.

If you are experiencing financial difficulties, we may be able to help pay towards some of your shopping. Find out more below
