CTSI UPDATE – April 16th 2020
The UK Government has announced an extension to lockdown measures across the country. This means that people are still being encouraged to stay at home and undertake social distancing measures. We therefore expect the high levels of demand for community support, food banks, and door-step deliveries to continue.
If you would like to get in touch with us please call 01259 213 840, email firstname.lastname@example.org or message our Facebook page.

Thank you to everyone who has registered to volunteer so far, the response from the community has been amazing.
