Working across Hampshire, Community First is working with districts with three clear aims:Any Hampshire residents requiring support and advice in this crisis should email support@cfirst.org.uk

Hampshire First is continuing some of its own services such as transport, shopmobility and wellbeing service and will endeavour to put people in contact with their local community support.

Do you want to volunteer? Go to http://www.volunteerwessex.org to register your interest.

“We are here to support our members,” said a spokesman for the charity. “If you have any questions, contact us. We’ll be updating twice weekly. Go to http://www.cfirst.org.uk/community-first-enews/ to get on our mailing list or email support@cfirst.org.uk

Tim Houghton, Community First’s CEO, said: “We are working with a wide range of agencies and groups to ensure that elderly and vulnerable members of our communities are supported at this difficult time. If you are worried about a neighbour, friend or isolated relative we can signpost you to the local community support that’s available. Across our communities we have an army of volunteers coming forward to help those most in need. We want to build on this social action and provide people with the tools to carry on this essential role. If you are coordinating a team of volunteers and would like to offer support please contact us via our website http://www.cfirst.org.uk and a member of our rapid response team will be in contact with you.”
