Coronavirus pandemic support

We have continued working with the Support Redditch Emergency Network (SREN) charity to provide support to help those that needed it during the pandemic.

At the beginning of June, the charity trustees met and decided to ‘step down’ operations due to additional capacity from supermarkets, pharmacies and other factors helping bridge the gap of support that was needed. As of the 15th June, Support Redditch Emergency Network (SREN) ceased operations.

However, it was recognised by Church Hill Big Local, REACH CIC and others that there would still be vulnerable people who would need support beyond this date. Ourselves, REACH CIC and Inspire CIC are working to continue providing support to those that need it, under the new guise of Redditch East Strong Together (REST).

People who still need support with services such as prescription collections, food shopping, etc. can contact the same number as before which is (01527) 919869.

We would like to say a massive thank you to the volunteers who have helped those most in need, it has been great to see so many people come together from SREN to REST to continue providing the invaluable support.

In Church Hill, we are lucky to have a dedicated prescription team who have done an amazing job throughout the pandemic, initially under SREN and now with REST. From back in March when this all began, around 60% of volunteer prescription deliveries across the town have been for residents of Church Hill and this has continued to remain a similar figure.

So, if you know anyone who may still need some support during this pandemic, please give them the number above. 

Alternatively, If you would like to volunteer and help us deliver this service, please call the same number or email

If you require medical advice please visit or speak to a medical professional.
