Our buildings may be closed to the public but our staff are still working and providing services to the people of Peterlee.
We are working alongside colleagues at Durham County Council, East Durham Trust, Citizens Advice County Durham and other local agencies to coordinate our activities as best we can during these testing times.
? providing a phone befriending service, reaching out to vulnerable residents in the community to check that they are ok and to provide some help and reassurance – let us know if you have a friend, relative or neighbour who you think might benefit from a friendly phone call to check in on them from time to time;
? providing logistical support to help a Peterlee food bank pick up donations from right across the wider area;
? carrying our regular checks of Woodhouse Park and other public open spaces to try to keep them as litter-free and safe as possible;
?♀️streaming regular online video health and well-being classes to help people stay active at home;
?helping local community groups by connecting them to available services and funding sources.
