'Together We Can' community response

BCP Council and local community groups have joined forces to launch a Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole ‘Together We Can’ community response to help and support vulnerable people during the coronavirus outbreak.

'Together We Can' is supported by Community Action Network - a charity that already offers support to over 2,500 voluntary and community groups across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. The community response will work through existing local neighbourhood structures, voluntary groups, and local councillors to ensure all three towns have access to support, advice, and practical help.
