One Slough Our community response
Our goal is to build community resilience in Slough to help residents in times of crisis including providing support in response to the coronavirus crisis.
This is a challenging time for everyone. We want to help local people to support one another and provide essential services to people who need it.
Slough Borough Council and Slough CVS are working with key local community groups and organisations so that we have a coordinated effort across our borough to organise volunteers and those who need help.
It is important that all our efforts to help those in need are organised through a collaborative approach that we can act in line with a spread prevention approach.
This is your first stop to find out how you can get involved or access help.
