One Front Door - Coronavirus community response

Do you need help and support? We are here to support you to get the help you require.

  • We want to ensure that no-one feels left behind – already we have provided support to local residents and worked with other charities to help people with food, prescription collection, linking up with some friendship support and advice on issues such as redundancy, debt, statutory sick pay or other benefits.

  • We are operating One Front Door to link you with the right level of support – working with Wokingham Borough Council and organisations including local foodbanks, Wokingham Volunteer Centre, First Days, Involve, Link Visiting Scheme, Age UK Berkshire and many more – including mental health and wellbeing support. We have a long list of charities and community groups operating across the area.
