Here2Help Coronavirus (COVID-19)
What is Here2Help?
Here2Help is a community action scheme, originally dedicated to helping those who needed support during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are now evolving the service so it offers advice, support and help to a wide range of services across Worcestershire.
As lockdown begins to ease, Here2Help will still help to support people who need to self-isolate and offer support to those who are unable to seek help from family, friends or neighbours.
Here2Help has been such a success, we have expanded the range of resources available. Here2Help will provide support for people of all ages and is available for both residents and organisations to access information, advice, tools, guidance and local support available to them or others in the local community based on their needs.
Calling all charities, community groups, public sector, organisations and businesses!

Residents Forum for new Here 2 Help Health and wellbeing Hub
We’re developing a dedicated Health and Wellbeing Hub and we’re looking for Worcestershire residents to be part of a focus group that meets regularly to help us shape this service.
If you have an interest in how the services we provide can help your community, we’re reaching out to you to join the group. Find out more information at Health and Wellbeing Hub – Resident Focus Group
In Worcestershire, as a way of encouraging and supporting people to stay connected we have launched the Stay Connected Pledge. The Pledge works with organisations to ensure their groups and activities are inclusive, welcoming to all and provides opportunities to connect with others. Once organisations have signed the pledge they have access to the stay connected logo which is displayed on their marketing and promotion. If you would like more information about the pledge and how to sign please see the Stay Connected pledge page.
