Local Coronavirus Covid-19 Support Groups

Southern Cross Covid-19 Support Group

Jenny from Southern Cross Covid-19 Support Group writes:

'Given the current situation and crisis we are facing, local groups have been set up around Brighton and Hove to offer help to people in need.

Leaflets have been delivered and posters distributed, but we realise that some elderly or vulnerable people won't be checking mail and could missthese. Due to the restrictions on movement we are also likely to be reducing the number of leaflets we can deliver.

My group is looking after the Southern Cross area of Portslade which covers (but isn’t limited to) the area between Portslade and Fishergate Stations and down to the beach.

The group would like to offer their help and support in any way needed and if there is anything you think could be offered, please do reach out.

This could include phone calls, prescription collection, grocery collection, help with delivering your service and anything else you think necessary.

The group can be contacted as follows:
