Nottinghamshire Community Support and Volunteering Hub

The Nottinghamshire Coronavirus Community Hub is a sign post service designed to offer advice and support to communities over the coming weeks and is a lifeline for vulnerable people, families and residents who can’t leave their homes or who are self-isolating at home.

The Hub signposts people to offer help with essential services such as:

  • Food supplies and delivery
