Community Hubs across Greater Manchester
Community Hubs have been established in each local authority area to provide support for the most vulnerable in each borough.
The hubs coordinate support for those who do not have any other way of sourcing food and medical supplies. They are also helping vulnerable residents to access hardship grants.
The phone numbers for all ten boroughs are below. Please only contact the hubs if you require help accessing food or medical supplies and have no other means of doing this:
