Shoreham, Southwick & Fishersgate Community Group
Covid led to a new understading of just how lonely people were in Shoreham, Southwick & Fishersgate. Whilst we assisst with shopping, prescriptions and emergecy food supplies we also built a relationship with those we were providing these services to and quickly realised we we in many cases the only people interacting with our neighbours. We are available as volunteer befrienders, neighbourly supporters and a safety net for those struggling or afraid to go out.
