Supporting Sudbury's community and businesses through collaboration during the Coronavirus outbreak 

How can you help? - Volunteer Now

The outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the globe has had an unprecedented impact on our communities. In order to delay the spread of the virus, we are all being urged to play our part by following government and NHS guidelines.  In Sudbury, a town known for our community spirit (we've even won awards for it!), there has been an outpouring of support for vulnerable residents, parents and families, and those being advised to self-isolate at this time.

Sudbury Town Council has helped to establish the Sudbury Community Network (SCN), which endeavours to match volunteers and their skills with needs created by the COVID-19 emergency.


Please consider how you could help our local community by volunteering some of your spare time.  There are many ways; either helping for a few hours at a foodbank, helping deliver food to isolated families near you, checking on vulnerable neighbours, or helping with administration if you are well, but stuck at home.

In order to efficiently deliver this service, Sudbury Town Council's much loved Tourist Information Team will temporarily become our Volunteer Coordinators. Putting their people skills to good use, they'll be coordinating your generous offers of support and linking you to the organistaions that need your help. Please use the forms below to volunteer your services.

Are you or do you know someone extremely vunerable in Sudbury or Great Cornard who needs help accessing essential items?

Please get in touch: or please use the 'Home But Not Alone' service below:


A new Suffolk-focused community service has been set up to support people who need help during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Called ‘Home But Not Alone’, the service has been launched to help connect people who want to volunteer in their communities with neighbours who are most in need.
