Local Support Hubs

Local Support Hubs are being set up by Buckinghamshire Council to help support the most vulnerable people in our communities. They are for people who do not have access to family, friends, or local networks who can help them.  There are 8 hubs across the county, which are being used as coordination and distribution points for the Council’s volunteer support network.

More information can be found on the Buckinghamshire Councils Buckinghamshire Council: Getting Help pages
