North Somerset Together is an initiative to help residents who are socially isolated with no support from family or friends access the support they need during the coronavirus pandemic and beyond. It also helps those who want to volunteer to get involved to link up with the right organisations, and signposts businesses to relevant information.
More than 1,600 people have now volunteered and are helping community groups across North Somerset deliver food and medication to those who are self-isolating with no friends or family to support them. Thank you to every organisation, group and volunteer who is working in our communities to make sure the most vulnerable are kept safe and protected.
Residents and businesses can access the service at www.n-somerset.gov.uk/together.
