North Devon Council has launched a new community support hub to ensure the most vulnerable residents are not forgotten during the Coronavirus pandemic.

A new dedicated phoneline (01271 388280) and online form are now available to those who need support who haven't already got help from family, friends, neighbours and support within the local community.

Request for assistance  

We are committed to working together to help and support local people to get through this outbreak. We are working with town and parish councils, voluntary and community groups, and local businesses to help us build this response.

If you'd like to let us know about some community or voluntary activity that is not already listed please contact us at

The Information Commissioner has published useful guidance for community groups that are being set up, or already exist, to help communities cope during this time. Please read the guidance online.
