COVID-19 Community Response Hub Update

Last year, an army of volunteers and community groups assembled across Merton to make sure help reaches those who need it most. 

3348 isolated households and those at risk from COVID-19 asked for help, with over 700 volunteers stepping forward to make sure they got the help they needed. 

The hub continues to offer support. Simply call 020 8685 2272 or email (between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday) if you, or someone you know, needs: 

  • Support with shopping and basic supplies
  • Access to prescription and medication
  • Support to access advice on money and benefits
  • Advice and practical help to stay active and independent at home
  • Telephone befriending
Can you volunteer?
Volunteers will be allocated tasks to help isolated households and those at risk from COVID-19. If you would like to add your name to the waiting list please email
