Great links for help groups

There are lots of help groups and communities are increasingly coming together to help their friends and neighbours in these difficult times. There are many worries that people have but probably the main ones are how to keep occupied during lock-down, coping with feelings of anxiety, grief and depression, concerns about feeding the family and money worries. Here are a few places that might be a useful starting point…

  • Your pets can suffer too especially if they are not getting as many walks as usual. To help relieve their boredom Puppy Leaks have come up with some great ideas. HERE
  • MIND are a national charity that are dedicated to helping people improve their mental health and stay well. HERE
  • Why not use some of your free time to volunteer – the link to the NHS volunteering website is HERE but there are other ways to volunteer so it’s worth checking out what is needed in your local community as well.
  • The Martin Lewis website moneysavingexpert is a great source of information about financial matters at the best of times, but this link gives great advice HERE 
  • One of the most heartbreaking aspects of the outbreak is how many people are going hungry. The Trussell Trust is a national network of foodbanks HERE





Many NHS organisations and charities need help from volunteers. This is a great way to get involved in the community. There are volunteer centres across the country, and many NHS trusts have volunteer managers you can contact if you want to find out about volunteer opportunities in your area.
