This is a challenging time for everyone. We want to help local people to support one another and provide essential services to people who need it.
Slough Borough Council and Slough CVS are working with key local community groups and organisations so that we have a coordinated effort across our borough to organise volunteers and those who need help.

- Leave any items being delivered on the doorstep rather than going into someone’s home or inviting them in
- Share information on any allergies
- We would strongly suggest that you do not give anyone your bank details or cards.
