Local Community Support
Northamptonshire County Council have set up a dedicated phone line for people who are self isolating and require support. Check out their website for more information and to find out if you are able to use the service.
East Hunsbury covid -19 Mutual Aid - a group of over 200 volunteers (and growing all of the time), set up to help anybody who is self-isolating in East Hunsbury. The group are encouraging volunteers to look after their own streets first - keeping the focus small will enable us to help each other over a longer period.
Northampton Covid-19 Hardship Fund has been set up to distribute community donations to those suffering immediate hardship. Small grants (of up to £30) can be made to those in need. This is a volunteer organisation that relies solely on donations.
