COVID Community Support

The COVID Community Support Team, led by Catalyst, are here to help you through the coronavirus pandemic. If you are self-isolating at home then we can help with:

  • Shopping
  • Providing essential food supplies
  • Picking up prescriptions
  • Listening on the phone and giving emotional support
  • Sign posting you to places that can provide advice and guidance
  • Other practical help – let us know what you need and we’ll try to help

We have an army of volunteers and brilliant voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations who are here to help and the team at Catalyst are determined to make it easy for you to get the help you need. All you need to do is:

Call: 01642 733906 or email: [email protected]

We’re here 9am-12pm Monday-Friday. You can call us yourself or if you know of someone who you think needs our help ask them if you can call us on their behalf. You can find out all about it on the Catalyst website.


Coronavirus - can you help?

We already have a group of brilliant VCSE organisations helping provide support:

Eastern Ravens, Five Lamps, Billingham Environmental Link Programme, Little Sprouts, Teesside Vineyard, BCT Aspire and the Moses Project

If you are a VCSE organisation and you can help – then please get in touch using the contact details above – we’d love to hear from you. Demand is growing and we need more help.

If you are an individual and you have some time and would like to volunteer then please get in touch using the contact details above – we can put you in touch with one of the organisations we’re working with and together we can do so much more.

Thank you!
