Coronavirus Kidderminster Community Support

Its a place to support each other. If you need help, ask, and somebody will help – whether its you or somebody you know who needs help, regardless of age. 

If you are willing to help, tell people you are available. If you are self isolating and just want to talk to somebody, hear a voice for a few minutes…ask and somebody will be there. We need to be there for each other
