Bury Council has set up five community hubs throughout Bury to target help and support for those residents most vulnerable to coronavirus (COVID-19).
What are the Bury Community Hubs?
Bury Council is working with organised voluntary groups and local volunteers to provide support and arrange delivery of food and medical supplies.
The hubs cover five areas: Bury North, Bury South, Bury West, Prestwich and Whitefield. They will pro-actively identify and reach out to vulnerable people, but people can also contact the hubs direct.
Who can access support?
Anyone living in the Borough of Bury without a support network who meets one or more of the following criteria:
- has received a letter from the NHS advising them that they are in the most vulnerable group and should be shielded;
- is aged 70 or over AND HAS UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITIONS;
- is otherwise socially or economically vulnerable.
What support is available from the Bury Community Hubs?
During the coronavirus outbreak the network is here to help those who do not have support to source food and medical supplies or access hardship grants.
The hubs are here to help
Support can be requested from Bury Community Hubs either online or by phone.
