The community hubs were set up in March 2020 as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the needs of shielding residents and other vulnerable people.
Despite the easing of restrictions, some residents still need this help, particularly those classed as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable.
Volunteers carry out shopping, support people with ways of re-engaging back into society and make regular calls to address loneliness, isolation and signpost to help for mental health issues.
The hubs also provide a space for those aged 50+ to get support and advice on a wide range of subjects, as well as somewhere to enjoy different classes (art, exercise etc), or simply to have a natter over a cup of tea!
