There is lots available within our local community to help those who are vulnerable and need extra support at this time.
Richmond & Wandsworth Community Hub
A Community Hub has been established that is working to help coordinate the support offered by the Council working in partnership with Wandsworth’s many voluntary organisations. A helpline has also been launched as a first response for residents. It can signpost you to the latest information and government advice, as well as other services the council can provide. If you or someone you know needs this support and they don’t have existing family, friends or other support that can step in, then please contact 0208 871 6555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
