As the situation around the Coronavirus pandemic evolves, we know that this is a very difficult time for people across the whole of the UK. This page has information on resources to help you cope, how SCVS may be able to signpost you to groups that can help you, and even tips on games to keep children entertained when unable to leave the house.

We will continue to add information to this page as it becomes available - please check back whenever you can.

Swansea as Clusters map - SCVS Support Teams March 2020Direct signposting support

The SCVS Team are mapping services across the whole county so that we can signpost you to the support you need - whether that's prescription collection, help with shopping, or just someone to talk to.

We have divided Swansea into 5 areas, to make sure the information is specific to your needs - the person to contact for support is listed next to each area, along with an email and telephone number (please note, we are receiving a tremendous number of enquiries, and will respond to you as quickly as we can - this is not a crisis response service, and only operates 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday):
