The UK Government has announced that a network of community hubs is being set up across the UK to deliver food and essentials to people with serious medical conditions who have been told to remain indoors for 12 weeks due to the threat of coronavirus.

This response will be community and voluntarily-led, with potential hubs in community centres across the Borough. 

Officers are currently seeking more information on the government’s proposals to establish community hubs and will keep this page updated with the details of of local community hubs.  

Already, three Good Morning projects have been supported in Antrim, Crumlin & Newtownabbey and services such as food bank distribution points have established at Greystone Community Centre from 24th March.
