As most of us are now staying in our homes as much as possible, we are changing the way we do things. We need to think more about helping each other and being neighbourly, and are finding new ways to keep in contact as a community, to give and gain support.
There are lots of support and ideas on the internet; below are a few links for community support and ways to reach out to your community.
