A partnership of Suffolk’s councils, police, health bodies and charitable organisations have come together to create a local COVID-19 app to connect volunteers and people who need help in the county.

The new Suffolk-focused community service is called ‘Home But Not Alone’ and supports people who need help during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The service helps connect people who want to volunteer in their communities with neighbours who are most in need, and charities, town and parish councils, community and religious groups can all log their details and offers of support too.

So if you or someone you care for need the help of a volunteer, give the service a call on 0800 876 6926. There’s a whole list of tasks they might be able to help you with, and they can discuss your needs.
