Do you need extra help during the Coronavirus outbreak – or do you want to offer a helping hand?

A new Community Hub has been created for Reading Borough Council residents needing additional support during the outbreak for those wanting to volunteer their time or services, and for businesses who have the resources to help support the community.

If you, or someone you know is in need of extra support:

Call 0808 1894325 (freephone) from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Offers of support

We have been overwhelmed by the response of the people of Reading who have kindly offered their support as volunteers. Due to this there are currently no further volunteer opportunities at this time to help the coronavirus response.

About the Hub

The One Reading Community Hub is a partnership between Reading Borough Council, Reading Voluntary Action and Reading’s wide and varied voluntary and community sector.

The public is being urged to only contact the Hub if they have urgent welfare needs which a family member or trusted friend cannot help them with. This is so that resources can be directed to the people that need it most at this challenging time. All offers of help and support are welcome from individuals, businesses and other organisations. The Hub cannot provide health advice and will direct customers to NHS 111.
