COVID-19 support

Easton Community Centre is the COVID-19 support hub for Easton ward, find more info for those sheilding and vulnerable.

Easton Community Centre is the designated Community Hub for Easton ward. We have been supporting vulnerable community members since March 2020 with food parcels, shopping, befriending and more.

Although no longer providing regular food parcels and day-to-day essential support, we are working with Bristol City Council and other local organisations to communicate the latest information about COVID-19 and where you can get support. Below you will find helpful resources and information.

REMEMBER: If you test positive for COVID-19 you must self-isolate. Self Isolation can be hard but there is support available. If you can’t find the help you need below please get in touch. You can contact Tracy Edwrads-Brown via email at tracyeb@upourstreet.org.uk or call 07947 830 973.
