Wokingham Borough Council have issued guidance pointing out opportunities to help
during the coronavirus emergency and how to get support:
Want to help your community during the COVID-19 situation?
Your communities are strong and resilient. There are simple things you can do to
help them continue to thrive!
1. Check in on vulnerable family, friends and neighbours
Just helping them with their shopping and checking they have everything they need
can make a huge difference. Know someone self-isolating? Call or text them to check
that they're ok.
2. Volunteer with a local charity
Wokingham Borough Council is working with local charities to provide community support
during this difficult time. To volunteer, visit the Wokingham Volunteer Centre website
at www.volunteerwokinghamborough.org.uk or by calling 0118 977 0749.
Do you need support?
If you are in need of help or support, reach out to your community. You are not alone!

Our communities are showing solidarity and community spirit during this difficult
time. Most of us will have family, friends or trusted neighbours who can help. Just

them on 0300 330 1189 (if prompted enter 0118 978 7258) or contact them via firstname.lastname@example.org
