If you need help in your local area you can contact your Community Hub.

They have volunteers and a range of support to help you and they are working with the Council to support communities during this crisis. We will add to this list as more Community Hubs are set up.

Please only contact the Hub in your area as they are going to be very busy. You can ring or email.

New hubs are being listed often, please keep checking.

NCVO has published guidance for volunteering during the outbreak, please read and adhere to the instructions.

If you are interested in volunteering in your area, please visit Volunteer Wakefield.
