Harborough District Council launches 'Community Hub'

Harborough District Council launches 'Community Hub'

News in from the Harborough District Council Parish & Community Facilities Officer, Nada Hankin...

Residents in Harborough District can now refer themselves, a family member that requires help, or someone in the community who needs help, during the Coronavirus crisis to the council's Community Hub.

People who are vulnerable and do not have a local support network can contact Harborough District Council if they:

  • need supplies of food and essentials
  • are feeling lonely or would like a friendly phone call or text message
  • would like to connect with a local community group
  • need transport to medical appointments
  • would like advice about staying active and exercising

Support will be delivered directly by Harborough District Council or voluntary and community partners.

To refer themselves, or someone they are concerned about, residents should fill in the online form at www.harborough.gov.uk/hd-community-hub

If residents have internet access we encourage them to use the online form.

If they cannot use the online form they should email communityhub@harborough.gov.uk or call 01858 821 232 from 9am-5pm

Just a reminder to say, if you are co-ordinating volunteers or you're aware of active support groups operating within your parish, please either email n.hankin@harborough.gov.uk or complete the online form.

It's really important you provide us with this information so please get in touch.

We've had over 50 support groups coming forward. We're continuing to work together with Voluntary Action South Leicestershire (VASL) and the community and voluntary sector to make sure everybody within the District can access the support they need during Coronavirus pandemic.

We will have Ward representatives as a point of contact, who will work together with support groups operating within your parish.
