Voluntary and Community Sector Support

Northumberland CVA is putting together a list of voluntary and community sector organisations, local support groups and local businesses that are willing to provide help to support local communities.

  • Voluntary and community organisations, local support groups or local businesses can join the list.


Local support groups

A number of COVID-19 Mutual Aid Groups and other groups e.g.  Isolation Help Northumberland, Helping Hexham, Proud of Prudhoe have cropped up in local areas. Search Facebook to find ones close to you or see our website below. Clicking on #MutualAid will bring up the local support groups (this is a work in progress).

While we welcome the community spirit of local people who want to support people in need we do have safeguarding concerns and ask people to be cautious. Only use people you know and trust wherever possible, do not let unfamiliar people into your home and do not give out bank cards.

For further advice, see our sections on Safeguarding for Organisations and Volunteering Information.
