Local Services

Most services have had to change their operations to provide a different kind of support during these times.

Below is a list of local services that have either changed the type of support they are offering, or have been newly set up to help those in need.


The Community Hub has been set up to co-ordinate the support that the Council and voluntary organisations in Wandsworth are offering. There is a helpline for residents, especially elderly and/or vulnerable people, who need support to access medical and care services, as well as food supplies.

The Community Hub's email address is for anyone who has questions about COVID-19.
