A partnership between Covent Garden Community Centre @ 7 Dials Club
& Covent Garden Dragon Hall Trust
I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a difficult year, but we are happy to report that our Christmas lunch for the over 55s went ahead. It was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who came.
If a resident needs urgent support they can call Contact Camden on 020 7974 4444 option 9.
Our line will be open from 8 am to 6 pm on working days and operating an out-of-hours service on bank holidays and weekends.
Covent Garden Community Centre (CGCC) & Covent Garden Dragon Hall Trust deliver community activities for those who live, work & study in the Covent Garden & Soho Villages.
The Centres share staff, expertise, resources, volunteers, strategic & business planning.
Lockdown started so we moved all regular services online. After School Clubs continue via Zoom & social media with phone support for young people and parents. We make daily contact with all of our older users, sort out food shopping & medicine collection for the isolated & vulnerable, share Covid-19 information, mental health support and well being advice. Within 2 weeks staff were flat out, workload more than doubled.
We are seeing real hardship & food poverty. Many residents in our areas work in hospitality & entertainment industries, are freelance or in the gig economy – many have never claimed benefits or asked for help before.
COVENT GARDEN FOOD BANK opened on 30th April 2020, just 10 days later!
Our Foodbank service has been going since 30th April 2020, and is helping the local community, vulnerable people and those suffering from food poverty.
Thanks to Phil and all the volunteers who are making regular visits and doorstep deliveries.
