Covid-19 VCS Support Services

Covid-19 VCS Support Services

Community Southwark has created a live directory of COVID-19 response services offered by organisations and groups across Southwark. We did this through information from our needs assessment survey and talking to groups and organisations.

You can view or download this directory in the below 'Airtable'. Make sure to click on 'view larger version' (bottom right).

We know that the list does not yet represent all of the incredible support services that are being offered across the borough. It only shows services for which we currently have the most up-to-date information so that we can be sure the information is accurate. We need your help to make this a useful tool for the sector and the public. If you have capacity to take on new service users and would like to be added to this database please fill out this form.

The Airtable is organised by the type of service. It shows you the organisation, website and contact details, where the service operates (by ward), who the service is for and how frequent it is.

To find services in a particular area, please follow these instructions:  

​1. Make sure you've selected 'view larger version'

2. Select 'filter' and then 'add filter'

3. Where it currently says 'ref' you need to change it to 'referral criteria - ward'

4. After ‘contains’ type in a specific ward or ‘whole borough’. Please note that where services are marked as operating in ‘whole borough’ this means that they are available in all wards. 

You can also filter by any of the columns e.g. if you wanted to see all the 'daily' services then you would filter by 'frequency of service' 

Southwark-wide map

We have also compiled information for a Southwark-wide map for our communities, volunteers, and frontline workers, showing the community resources available. 

The map has information on the following:

– Community Organisations with Covid-19 services

  • Signposting & Advice
  • Virtual Meets and Online Activities
  • Legal Advice & Universal Credit
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Befriending
  • Telephone Calls
  • Shopping, Delivery & Collection
  • Medicines & Prescriptions Collection
  • Mental Health, Wellbeing and Bereavement
  • Help Getting Online
  • Homelessness
  • Translation & ESOL
  • Other services

– Mutual Aid Groups
– Tenant and Residents Groups (Coming Soon)
– Online & web resources (Coming Soon)

If your group is providing help to local people, please add it to the map here – this will take you to a page which we have split by services and so click on your service and it will take you into that section of the map.

You can also watch our tutorial here to learn how to add to the map.


Southwark food map

We have also produced a Southwark food map. Our Southwark Food Action Alliance team has collaborated with Community Mapping to map all the food related activities within Southwark.

We have mapped essential services such as Foodbanks, Community fridges, Community meals and local delivery services during COVID-19.

This map is for all in Southwark to find what services are available and how to access these services, as well as organisations to share with beneficiaries.

Southwark Council List of Services

Finally, there is a more traditional list of services prepared by Southwark Council.
