Community Help

Gloucestershire County Council have launched a brilliant community hub in partnership with all the local councils, the health services, and police. In these challenging and unprecedented times we need to support each other. You can use this website if you need help, or if you or your business is able to provide help. Support that you could provide includes help with food shopping, taking the bins out, or being available for a friendly chat during what could be a very isolating period for many. 

This hub also has the latest information on school closures and other essential information as it becomes available.
