Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In response to Covid-19, we are working with the local voluntary and community sector to support as many people as we can.

If you're worried you may have Covid-19, please follow the advice from the NHS, which you can find here.

If you are vulnerable or self-isolating and need urgent support from your community, please call Hampshire County Council's Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline on 0333 370 4000. Find out more about the helpline here.

Our offices are now closed to the public. Teams can be contacted by email, or you can contact us at support@cfirst.org.uk.

Select from the options below to find out more about how Community First are supporting local action to address Covid-19.

For our members, community groups and charities looking for help and support - email support@cfirst.org.uk.

Please check back regularly for updates about how you can help.
