HOME BUT NOT ALONE
A new Suffolk-focused community service called ‘Home But Not Alone’, has been launched to help connect people who want to volunteer in their communities with neighbours who are most in need.
The service will mean willing volunteers, charities, town and parish councils, community and religious groups can all log their details and offers of support on an app, while people who need help can phone to request support.
To volunteer or request help go to: Home But Not Alone
