Support available during the pandemic

This is an alphabetical list of our member organisations active in Redbridge during the pandemic. For each organisation we have added details of the services it currently has available, which may be different from its normal services. We are contacting organisations to find out what services they are providing, and if we can help them to do more.

If you are involved with an organisation which is currently providing services, it would be very helpful if you could send details of those services to Kay Kelleher via email or on 020 3874 4150.
