Trafford's six community hubs were set up in March 2020 by voluntary organisations working in partnership as part of the borough-wide response to the covid-19 pandemic. The support offered by the hubs has grown and evolved to meet the unique needs of their local community and will continue to provide a range of support for all residents for many years to come.
Between the hubs, every Trafford resident can access a range of basic level support which all the hubs offer. Every hub also offers a second level of support which reflects the strengths of their individual organisations and the specific needs in their neighbourhood.
Help can be found through the hubs by professionals working with individuals and the individuals themselves.
Each of the hubs provide at least a basic level of support for anyone in Trafford in need of help with food. This may include emergency food provision or practical help with shopping.
All of the hubs work closely with partners and have a wide range of solutions available for almost every problem. The hub teams all offer signposting, information and advice for a wide range of problems. If you're not sure where to go for help with something, they will find an answer.
The hubs have a range of options available when it comes to supporting people with essential items. From funds to helping source the items needed elsewhere, if you're in a difficult situation the hubs will do their best to find a solution.
Each hub has its own volunteer co-ordinator who's role is to support, recruit and match volunteers with suitable positions. If you are looking to give back, make steps toward employment or looking to recruit volunteers, get in touch.
