Accessing community support

A number of community groups are being set up to help you access support. 

These are in addition to the services we're already providing from our Wellbeing Hub to free Hardship Food Boxes.

You can also get help from:

  • Covid-19 Mutual Aid UK has compiled a list of local groups set up on social media sites such as Facebook or WhatsApp in an effort to share learning, resources and support. You can find out what groups are in your area, or to register a group
  • The Community Council for Somerset (Somerset Village and Community Agents) are already working in communities with different groups and individuals to make sure the vulnerable are identified and supported. You can find local village agent details here
  • Citizens Advice in Somerset have closed their face to face services (including outreach) and increased capacity on their phones and email services. Clients can visit their respective websites for full details of their options or phone their advice line on 03444 889 623.
  • Mindline Somerset is an out of hours helpline that is a confidential listening service providing a safe place to talk if you, or someone you know, is in distress. They can also give basic information about mental health and local services. Find out more or phone 01823 276 892 (Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week).

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
