Here is your fortnightly newsletter sent on behalf of The Collaborative Communities COVID-19 Board.
From response to recovery: Over the past 4 months, the Collaborative Communities COVID-19 Board has been focusing on responding to the pandemic and supporting Suffolk. This includes the Home, But Not Alone phoneline, food and medication deliveries, emergency food parcels, foodbanks, emergency housing and other support services. You’ll find an infographic in this newsletter highlighting the extent of community work.

In light of this change from response to recovery, the newsletter will now be sent monthly. If you wish to be removed from this mailing list, please let us know by return.
We need your help: We are also establishing a Community Reference Group to support the recovery process in Suffolk. This will play an important role in advising and co-producing with statutory services across the county. If you would like the opportunity to contribute to the work of this group - either by completing short surveys or dialling into meetings from time to time - please let us know by return. There is no expectation that you will be able to do this if called upon, but it would be great to hear from and involve you as we move forwards.
