Since its launch at the end of March, the Nottinghamshire Coronavirus Community Support Hub has now successfully resolved more than 1,000 requests for help from vulnerable people, families and residents who couldn’t leave their homes or who were self-isolating at home.

- food supplies and delivery
- collecting and delivering medicines
- personal and social support – dog walking, collecting newspapers
- advice on physical, mental and emotional health
- transport needs.
To date, a total of 1,008 requests have been resolved across Nottinghamshire with access to food (57%) being the most popular request, followed by access to medicine (26%), befriending/ social wellbeing (10%) and others like dog walking and transport needs (7%).
