Community support

Volunteer to help in your community

Essex Coronavirus Action

Essex Coronavirus Action is a collaboration between the council, the Essex Public Health team, and local Facebook group owners to provide 3 main services during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

  • Prevent: to give advice to help people prevent coming into contact with coronavirus and passing it on to others, including those who are vulnerable

  • Inform: to inform people about hoaxes, myths and fake news circulating social media about coronavirus

  • Assist: to assist vulnerable members of our local communities who may need help due to self-isolation or other factors, by putting them and their carers and families in touch with local volunteers

Visit the Essex Coronavirus Action page on Facebook.


If you are a resident or a local business who is willing to help, complete the relevant online form below and your details will be passed on directly to the group that is operating in your area:
