Would you like to help vulnerable people in Harrow get the support they need during the coronavirus outbreak?
We appreciate that many of you will want to help others and those most in need in our community.
From donating money to joining an online database of volunteers and checking up on elderly neighbours, there’s plenty we can all do to support those around us at this time.
A database of potential volunteers has been set up by Voluntary Action Harrow. It will be used to inform organisations looking for helpers.
Donate to the Harrow Coronavirus Community Fund
Local charity Harrow Giving has set up a fund to support frontline organisations working with people affected by coronavirus.
This may be to help with food distribution or to ensure organisations have the capacity and resources to support their most vulnerable clients.
On behalf of Harrow Council, Harrow Giving is administering Harrow’s share of the Edward Harvist Trust fund on behalf of the Edward Harvist Trust Charity.
Find out more on our Edward Harvist Trust fund page.
Look out for the people around you
Check in on an elderly neighbour; speak with your loved ones, video chat with anyone you know who is self-quarantined to keep them company.
It’s important to find ways to build a sense of community in a time of isolation.
