Coronavirus Community Help Taunton came together at the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak. A small group of people setup a Facebook group with the simple intention of helping the people of Taunton, Somerset through this difficult time. It has grown to over 12,000 members with thousands more in over 39 sub groups. The volunteers, admins and coordinators have worked tirelessly to help keep the people of Taunton safe by doing shopping for the vulnerable, collecting prescriptions, calling isolated individuals for a chat and even setting up a community shop!
As the country has come out of lockdown we have decided to keep the group going and join the Priorswood Community Center so we can continue to support our community in a unique way that other services are not always able to.
We offer shopping for essentials, prescription collections and friendly phone calls. So far we have serviced over 500 requests!
We never charge for any of the services we offer and all of our volunteers wear a CCHT ID badge. If ever in doubt call the Somerset Coronovirus Helpline number.
