Why should you call us?

Shopping
If you are isolated, unable to use online channels or you do not have anyone to get your essential items for you, then we can help.

Prescriptions
If you are self-isolating and require medication or a prescription, we now direct you to Billingshurst Community Transport (on 01403 787696), who will look to help.

Anxiety and Isolation
If you are worried about the Coronavirus situation, struggling with isolation or you would just like a friendly person to chat to, then give us a call.

Food Parcels
The Coronavirus has created challenging times for all of us. But for some, it has had a big financial impact. For those that are unable to afford the essentials, we are putting together food parcels.

What area do we cover?

The covid-19 Support Team will continue to support people from the RH14 9 (Billingshurst, Five Oaks & Adversane) area for as long as we are needed in the coming months.

We ask that residents do not abuse the service we offer. Whilst we will help where we can, please remember that all the volunteers are putting themselves at risk by going out and shopping for you.

We all hope that we will be through this crisis period soon, but in the meantime please get in touch if you need help or advice.
