Hart District Council, in partnership with Hart Voluntary Action, has created the Hart Response Hub—HRH. Its purpose is to ensure a coordinated response towards volunteer assistance to those in need during the current pandemic.
The Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline—0333 370 4000—matches those requiring assistance with the most appropriate support network, which may be HRH.
HRH staff will assess the referrals from the Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline before allocating them to the respective Town or Parish volunteers.
