Need Support?

Whether you are in self isolation due to symptoms of Covid-19 or you’re isolating yourself due to pre-existing medical conditions, we will try and support you. We understand that many people do not have family and friends who are able to help – many of our volunteers have family who live in other parts of the country and are relying on volunteers to help their family members!

This community group is based on local businesses and volunteers getting involved and is run entirely on a volunteer basis. For that reason, we cannot guarantee we can always help, but we will do our upmost to.

If you need support, please fill in the form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If it is urgent, please contact us using the details on the contact page. We are unfortunately only able to help those within the Poole area, but there are various community groups being set up across the region continuously. 

We cover postcodes BH12, BH13, BH14, BH15, BH16, BH17, BH18 and part of BH11. We are also providing a dog walking service for people who cannot walk their dog because they are vulnerable or self isolating.

We have also made a list of some local businesses that provide delivery. See our “local businesses” page for these.

We cannot take support requests for food deliveries unless it is within 2–3 days of needing the delivery, unless you require specialist allergy food eg. gluten free bread.
