Virgin Care and 3SG, who represent 3rd Sector Organisations across Bath and North East Somerset, have come together alongside BaNES Council and the CCG to offer an advice and support hub. Compassionate Community is a BaNES wide movement which recognises that there are people and organisations supporting each other, can step in as and when needed, with actual or virtual support.
The Compassionate Community hub seeks to assist those who are self-isolating or shielding and those that are clinically the highest risk people in our community, who are in need of help. We have combined resources to ensure that, as a service, we are able to provide sustainable and appropriate responses to meet community needs. This includes access to over 2,000 volunteers recruited, checked and trained by 3SG.
Compassionate Community Hub line is 0300 247 0050
We have also compiled a list of organisations that can offer support and guidance during the coronavirus pandemic:
