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.

The phoneline is open 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday. The online form is monitored seven days a week so an urgent referral over a weekend needs to be made via the online form.

Request for assistance  

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.
