Sonning Support

Sonning Support
We offer non-medical assistance to Sonning residents.

We're here to help with:  

  • Picking up your shopping or medical supplies
  • Posting letters and parcels
  • Walking your dog or helping you look after your pets
  • Giving you a friendly phone call
  • Other small tasks that become urgent

About us:

  • Our informal group of local volunteers was brought together in March 2020 under the umbrella of Sonning Support Covid-19 to provide non-medical help to anyone in the area that needed it during the initial ‘lockdown’ period.
  • We plan to continue to help within the community for as long as we are needed. From providing a friendly phone call to supporting those who cannot leave home in the short term we are here to provide assistance.
