Your wellbeing is important to us and we want to ensure that you are safe and well. There are many people in our community who don't have anyone to turn to for support, and so we have set up a network of three community hubs to support vulnerable residents during this challenging time.
These hubs, funded by Folkestone & Hythe District Council, are working with voluntary organisations to ensure that community help is delivered to those who need it most.
All three Community Hubs are being supported by Folkestone & Hythe District Council staff and resources.
These are the only community hubs which are being supported by the district council.
No one should feel as though they are alone during this challenging time. Folkestone, Hythe & Romney Marsh are pulling together and your community is here to help to:
Assistance is not limited to the above - we will try and assist our vulnerable residents in any way we can.
Anyone who cannot go out (whether self-isolating, immobile or unwell) and who does not have support networks (friends, family, neighbours) to do this for them should contact the community hub in their area.
Please do not contact the community hubs unless you are in genuine need of assistance. These hubs will be the only source of support for many of our residents and if people use them who do not need them, they are diverting help away from those most in need.
Do not visit the community hubs in person. Please phone or email us on the contact details below, or complete the following form if you need help from the community hubs.
