Coronavirus support for Sandwell businesses: giving and receiving

We set up this page in the height of the coronavirus pandemic, sharing resources and information that were pertinent to the situation we had all found ourselves in. Sandwell businesses were so generous in donating their time, money and resources to help the borough’s most vulnerable people during the height of the coronavirus crisis. Thank you.

To celebrate and further encourage this goodwill, we have now created a permanent page called ‘Giving back, feeling good’, which we frequently update with volunteering ideas for your Sandwell organisation.

We are no longer updating the information below.

Sandwell Council’s page on coronavirus includes details of emergency support for local people.

Sandwell Council
has also compiled a list of community groups that can help locally with people in isolation.

Sandwell Young Carers offers free activities and confidential support to children and young people aged 5 to 18 years old, who are caring for a disabled or ill family member.

The Sandwell Family Life website has contact details for a wide variety of support services, including a number of food banks and community outreach projects.

If you are safe to volunteer as an individual, you can register with SCVO (Sandwell Council of Voluntary Organisations).

If you can afford it, a monetary donation to Smethwick Food Bank would help it to continue supporting local people.

If you are worried about a rough sleeper in Sandwell please call Sandwell Council’s contact centre on 0121 368 1166 (option 2) or email
