Dear Parents, I hope that you are all keeping well. Please find below some information about the local hubs to support families. This could help with queries about families struggling to buy food. This is the council website page link… http://www.trafford.gov.uk/residents/community/partnerships-and-communities/Coronavirus-Covid-19-Trafford-Community-Response.aspx
There are 5 community hubs across Trafford which are up and running to support people through the COVID-19 outbreak. They are located in Altrincham, Gorse Hill, Partington, Sale and Urmston but anyone needing local support needs to go through the dedicated helpline to avoid overcrowding at hub venues.
The centres are available to those living in the area who are self isolating or vulnerable and are being run by volunteers from across Trafford. They have been set up and coordinated by Trafford Council, Trafford Housing Trust, Thrive, Trafford Stronger Communities Board and other local community groups who were already helping to support local residents when social distancing measures were first put in place. The centres officially opened on Monday 23 March and their exact location in Altrincham, Gorse Hill, Partington, Sale and Urmston will be given to residents who need support or those volunteering to assist when they call the dedicated helpline 0300 3309073. To avoid overcrowding the centres and preventing further unnecessary spread of the virus, their exact location is being kept quiet to enable social distancing to be maintained.
