We all need help from time to time, especially in this unprecedented period, so we have complied a list of local (and national) organisations and groups that may be able to offer some help or advice…

Chase Coronavirus Support Network (CCSN)

In light of the ongoing crisis with Coronavirus, Chase Corona Support Network was set up to coordinate a local task force and to provide local information for residents and a commitment to pass on national information.

Many of our residents are elderly or vulnerable and may soon be self-isolating. Those who do not have friends or family may encounter difficulties with getting supplies and we would like to provide a link for those working in local groups to identify these people or to provide a place where people can be directed to a volunteer or other help.

Cannock & District Foodbank

The Cannock and District foodbank will continue to provide emergency food to people in crisis.  With all this said we have made some unprecedented operational changes. From Monday 23rd March 2020 all usual foodbank food distribution centres for the Cannock & District foodbank will close apart from Kingsmead Baptist Church and Emmanuel Church. This means the foodbank centres on the back of the red vouchers will no longer be open. Taking their place will be Coniston Hall which will distribute food Monday-Friday between 10am and 3pm.
