The Uttlesford Community Response Hub will continue to support vulnerable and isolated people. We are here for as long as you need us.
I would like to thank each and every volunteer across Uttlesford and Chelmsford for your kindness and dedication in the last few months. Whether you help set up a neighbourhood group in Great Chesterford or you picked up medication from the pharmacy for those shielding in Writtle, without your help, we certainly would not be in the position we are now.

It’s a sad fact, but some people will see the current crisis as an opportunity to take advantage of vulnerable people. We have been asked to share this information with our community, so that residents are more aware of potential scams that could be happening at this time.
