Covid-19 Emergency Response

26th March 2020 

Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust is working together with Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council and Age Concern Birmingham to support voluntary, community and faith organisations across Sutton Coldfield to ensure that local residents in need are able to access the support and information they need during this difficult period.  A Sutton Coldfield Together website has been created where help can be requested, and this also has the details of local organisations and groups offering support and services to those in need. You can access this here: RSTC Website

We know that we have a caring community here in Sutton Coldfield and that many people will want to help out, and so the website also has a facility for those wishing to get involved to register as a volunteer, as well as advice on how to be a good neighbour in a way that keeps everyone safe.

In addition, the Sutton Coldfield Neighbourhood Network Scheme will be offering support to voluntary and community groups and faith organisations who may need advice and guidance together with access to additional resources to enable them to deliver support and services to residents at this time and you can contact them on NNS@ageconcernbirmingham.org.uk.

It is important that we all now focus our efforts in line with Government advice and this coordinated local response to give Sutton Coldfield the best chance of fighting COVID-19 together, to safeguard vulnerable people, avoid duplication and share only accurate and up to date information.

We would like to thank you all for your support and commitment to our aim of making sure that nobody who needs help in Sutton Coldfield is left without it.

Not for profit organisations may be able to seek financial support from Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust,  further details are at this link
