West Norfolk Community

Co-ordinating Hub

Councils in Norfolk are working with charities and volunteers to help keep people safe in our local communities.

This includes providing food essentials, collecting prescriptions and medicines, ensuring that people feel safe and making sure they know who they can turn to in their times of need.

Helpline number 0344 800 8020 open 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and for emergencies on Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 4pm

With business partners the KLWN Borough Council has created a physical food hub, where food parcels are put together to help those who are unable to access the basic supplies that they need. This is the centre where the Government food supplies are dispatched from, along with support for those who are in emergency need of supplies and cannot get out or have no support networks of their own. 

Volunteers

Anyone who feels that they can volunteer should go through the Voluntary Norfolk website https://www.voluntarynorfolk.org.uk/, businesses who are able to offer support should email covidbusinessresponse@voluntarynorfolk.org.uk.
