Hands in the air for volunteering

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

Test and trace support payment (£500 self-isolation payment)

The test and trace support payment has been introduced to support residents who are struggling to self-isolate due to financial constraints.

The aim of the scheme is to ensure residents on low incomes self-isolate when they test positive or are identified as a contact. For more information view our test and trace support payment page, through the button below.
