Donate to Tameside's emergency community response to the coronavirus

Action Together is aiming to raise £5,000 for Tameside's emergency community response to the coronavirus pandemic.  All the money raised will go to local groups and charities in Tameside to help them continue to provide vital support.  Donations could help to provide telephone advice, support and companionship for older people to prevent them from feeling isolated during self-isolation, or it could help a local foodbank or community group to support local people.

Donate items for ‘Comfort Packs’ for patients staying in Tameside hospital

As you will know, patients currently in hospital in Tameside have heavy restrictions in terms of visitors and as a result are not able to access the usual comforts that might be provided by friends or family.  To help people have a more comfortable stay, Tameside and Glossop ICFT are appealing to local organisations and individuals who may be able to help with products that could go in comfort packs.  They hope to start distributing to patients next week.  Items need to be new and will be gathered at Silver Springs House at the hospital site.  The sorts of items that would be incredibly useful include:
Toothbrush and toothpaste Moisturiser and hand cream Books Puzzle books
Pens Eye masks Ear plugs Hot chocolate sachets
Body wash Magazines Playing cards
Bags to put the packs in
Any organisations or individuals who would like to support this should make contact by emailing or calling 07766297853 to arrange delivery or collection of goods. 

Funding available for Tameside community groups

Action Together have launched a Covid-19 Community Response Fund. The fund is available for groups from the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector working on a COVID-19 Community Response in Tameside and Glossop.
Applications must meet either of these priorities:
  • We want to connect local community action and help to co-ordinate efforts in response to the needs of residents. We are especially interested in funding good neighbour, mutual aid and social action projects that directly help people affected by the effects of the virus
  • We also want to support the community, voluntary, faith and social enterprise sector to respond with new ideas that help, connect or support people through this crisis
Applications for the Community Response Fund are split into two: up to £200, or up to £1,000.

Action Together are also sharing other funding available in response to coronavirus. Find funding at

Food banks across Tameside have seen an unprecedented demand on their services as a result of Covid19. Residents are finding themselves in food poverty following job losses, school closures and extra meals to prepare as well as benefit assessments being put on hold.

Many families are visiting Foodbanks for the first time, putting huge pressure on local foodbanks and their food supplies. They need more donations, otherwise many will be forced to close.

Can you help? As supermarkets begin to lift restrictions on number of items shoppers can buy, could you donate even just one extra item whilst doing your weekly shop?

Remember whilst you are visiting supermarkets to keep your social distance and wash your hands before and following your trip.
