COVID-19 Community Response

Do you need help and support?
Our priority has always been people first; this is no different during this crisis.

If you are a resident in Bracknell Forest who:
  • Was being shielded or living with someone who was shielding
  • Self-isolating due to COVID-19 symptoms
  • Social distancing but have other health conditions, disabilities or caring responsibilities that make it difficult for you to leave your home
and have no support available from friends or family, then we can help!
This page does not include everything the volunteer network does. If you have a need that is not listed below please contact us to discuss.

You do not need to register, when you need the community response network please call 01344 266911 or email community@theark.org.uk

Open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday's closed.

The community response is a partnership between The Ark Trust and Bracknell Forest Council.
