Covid-19 support for individuals and families

In recent days there has been a lot of focus on councils and how they are assisting with supporting those financially impacted by Covid-19 particularly over the half term school holidays. 

From the start of the pandemic, we have had a team working to support the most vulnerable in our communities. 

The Community Hub continues to carry out this work and is the main point of contact for individuals and families in need not just for half term but as we continue to deal with the impact of the pandemic across our districts. 

Our message to residents is to contact the Community Hub if as result of Covid-19, they need help with access to food.  We have a dedicated team who can put them in touch with a network of volunteer groups and organisations who can offer help with food and essential supplies.  

The Community Hub team is available from: 

  • 8.30am-5pm Monday to Thursday 
  • 8.30am-4.30pm on Fridays 

Call our Community Hub on 01235 422600 or email  communitysupport@southandvale.gov.uk.  Attached is a document that the team have put together of the organisations offering food support over half term in your area which you may find useful. This is also available on the Covid-19 support section of our website for the public to access
