One Front Door - coronavirus community response
We want to ensure that no-one feels left behind – already we have provided support to local residents and worked with other charities to help people with food, prescription collection, linking up with some friendship support and advice on issues such as statutory sick pay or other benefits.
We are operating One Front Door to link you with the right level of support – working with Wokingham Borough Council and organisations including local foodbanks, Wokingham Volunteer Centre, First Days, Involve, Link Visiting Scheme, Age UK Berkshire and many more – including mental health and wellbeing support. We have a long list of charities and community groups operating across the area.
Wokingham Borough Council is working with local charities to provide a community response for those who don’t have support and need advice or practical help. This is not an alternative to the NHS or social services.
