Helping those in need across Preston

COVID19 is an unknown and difficult situation for everyone, especially the most vulnerable in our society and we are doing everything we can to help. 

Preston Together is a free Community Hub service for people in the city who need support. 

We are working with partners across the County to support the most vulnerable in our community who are facing difficulties, worries and loneliness as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Our service is currently operating Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm
