Looking out for each other in Sutton: ongoing Covid-19 support from the Voluntary and Community Sector

With lockdown easing and shielding guidance changing, you may have concerns about the kind of support you'll be able to access in the next few months. We wanted to assure you that there will continue to be support available for you, no matter what your circumstances. As you may already know, boxes from the Sutton Council Food Hub are ending later this month. If you have been receiving these food boxes, you will have been contacted by Sutton Council to discuss your options and find out what support you need.

We will be able to help you with securing an online supermarket delivery slot, or the services of dedicated shopper, or a short term food parcel delivery from the Voluntary sector hub depending on your circumstances. If you are currently receiving any support from us then this will continue and we will continue to talk to you about what help you need. The Voluntary sector is already supporting the distribution of food and other essential supplies which has already been running for 8 weeks. This has been supplied by donations from the public, food via Sutton Council and monetary donations to Sutton Giving.

Thank you
