OTHER SUPPORT NETWORKS
WHERE ELSE CAN I GET HELP?
We don’t want to reinvent the wheel. We know that there are already many fantastic groups in Henley and surrounds offering support and help to residents in many ways.
We are working with these groups where we are aware of them, to bring them under our umbrella during this time of crisis to make them as easy to find as possible for anyone who may need help. If you live in the villages or surrounding areas of Henley, there are lots of fantastic groups supporting their communities we can direct you too.
We are also working to signpost people in need to organisations that offer more specialist need, and would love to hear about any we haven’t yet listed here.
