We have worked with district and borough councils across Norfolk to set up community hubs to help people who are feeling vulnerable and need support during the coronavirus situation.
If you are finding one or many aspects of life difficult to manage, or know someone who is, the community hubs will link you up with voluntary or community organisations that can help you with a range of tasks and support.
If you or someone you know needs any of the above help, contact us on 0344 800 8020.
Please note, community hubs are an addition to, not a replacement for our normal social care and safeguarding services for adults and children.
