What else is available to people?

There are lots of volunteers, local community organisations and other groups helping out in the community. We encourage people to firstly access what is already available – including family, friends, neighbours and local volunteers.

We have also been working with members, voluntary and community sector organisations to collate information about what support is available for people as well as identifying what support those groups may need and to identify what gaps there may be. People are signposted into this support if they need it.

What help is available for community groups and volunteers who are already helping people?

The Community Hub can support groups and volunteers with any urgent needs please contact the Hub on enquiries@dncommunityhub.org.uk

What people say about the community hub

A 70 year old lady who lives in Kent contacted the call centre to register her 98 year old mother who lives in Intake said that staff couldn't be any more helpful. Her mother has support from her neighbour, but the call put the lady's mind at ease and she was reassured the help is there if needed.
