Trafford Community Response
Trafford Community Response Line supporting residents self-isolating due to the coronavirus has been launched. It gives people a direct line to the help available during their period of self-isolation due to the virus.
Residents can call 0300 3309073 for assistance with shopping, telephone support and food parcels.
We're also looking to recruit volunteers to help us. If you have skills and time that you would like to offer please do so via the Thrive website.
