Our community is at its best when we pull together. As well as looking after our friends and family at this time, many residents are doing what they can to support vulnerable neighbours too.

If you are also looking to volunteer and help in our wider community during this crisis, please e-mail the Central Surrey Voluntary Action at admin@csva.co.uk The CSVA are collating this information and putting together a vetting process to safeguard both those providing the voluntary services and the parties receiving them. The District Council and the County Council are working with the CSVA to set up a scheme which will allow those vulnerable people who need assistance to be put in touch with those able to provide it.

If you are concerned about a neighbour or you yourself need community support, you can call the Surrey County Council Coronavirus Helpline on 0300 200 1008. Please note that this is not a medical helpline, but one to ask for practical help from the community.

We can't say for sure what the coming weeks hold but we can reassure you that we will provide any help we can for people who need it. Please get in touch by replying to this e-mail if you would like our assistance.

If you require more information:

  • The latest information from Public Health England on Coronavirus or COVID-19 can be found on the Public Health England website: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

We are getting updates on a regular basis from the Council about the latest support being provided and plan to issue briefings like this with useful updates over the coming weeks.

Finally, feel free to get in touch with us if there is anything we can help with - on this or any other issue.

We hope you and your family will remain safe and well during this difficult time.
