The Royal Borough of Greenwich has launched a new Community Hub that will link thousands of volunteers with opportunities to help people who are most in need of support.  

If you need help because you are vulnerable and self-isolating, and have not got a family member, friend or neighbour who can help, the volunteers could provide support with collecting/delivering prescriptions, delivering essential food packages and connecting you to local community services.

You can contact them to request support on 0800 470 4831 or Email covid19support@royalgreenwich.gov.uk
