Wokingham Borough Council

To find out up to date information regarding coronavirus in the Borough, please find below two helpful websites: 

Wokingham Borough Community Response Just Giving Page

Managing the Covid-19 pandemic is a team effort. 

Wokingham Borough Council, Town and Parish Councils, Voluntary Groups, Community Organisations and Charities, neighbourhoods and individual people are all pulling together to support those who need extra help at this time.

The Wokingham Borough Community Response is our borough-wide one-stop-shop for helping those in need during this difficult time. The volunteers around the borough complete essential shopping, drop off food parcels or deliver prescriptions.  Also, they are answering the phones to worried residents in need of help, telephoning people who are isolated to check if they’re ok and offering some friendship at an especially lonely time.

 All the money raised will go to fund food parcels for vulnerable people across the Borough, and any funds left over once the food hub closes will be distributed to the voluntary sector organisations involved in this combined response.

The Wokingham Borough Community Hub

The Wokingham Borough Community Hub provides food, toiletries and essentials to people who need it, in our Borough.  

Wokingham Borough Council is working with charities in the Borough to provide a community wide response to help vulnerable people during the Covid-19 crisis.

You can volunteer – just sign up via Wokingham Volunteer Centre and they’ll be in touch. 

You can donate essential supplies.

The Citizens Advice Bureau

For people needing advice or practical support please contact our Citizens Advice Bureau by: 

We are actively promoting the One Front Door Service.  If you cannot leave home due to the coronavirus and need help because there is no-one locally who can give you support, please use the form on the Citizens Advice Bureau website.  They will triage your request and link you with appropriate support across Wokingham Borough which have signed up to this scheme and, if they can, they will find a volunteer who can help get you shopping or pick up prescriptions, or just call for a friendly chat.

Exercise

You can still go to the park for outdoor exercise once a day but only alone or with members of your household, not in groups.

Communal places within parks such as sports courts, playgrounds and outdoor gyms are not to be used, to protect everyone’s health.

We ask that households use parks responsibly and keep 2 metres apart from others at all times.

Unless you are with members of your household, gatherings of more than two people in parks and other public spaces have been banned. The police have the powers to disperse gatherings and issue fines if necessary.
