Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore, has been praising the ‘fantastic’ response here in the county to the ‘Home but Not Alone’ campaign.  

People have volunteered their time to help the most vulnerable in Suffolk – as they adjust and deal with government advice to ‘Stay Safe and ‘Stay at Home’ because of COVID-19.

‘Home but Not Alone’ aims to connect those volunteering with community groups, charities and local councils offering volunteer roles – and is being coordinated by Community Action Suffolk.

The telephone number for those in genuine need of help is a freephone number 0800 876 6926 and is staffed from 9am to 5pm, seven days a week and is led by local experts – and will respond to the areas of greatest need.

Tasks for those assisting with the campaign including working with the Suffolk Good Neighbour Scheme, Food Banks and Local Councils responses.

That telephone number to call again if you require help is 0800 876 6926.
