Vulnerable residents in Dereham are being supported through a council derived delivery service.
Breckland councillor Alison Webb, the executive member for health and housing alongside councillor Philip Duigan and Hilary Bushell, have set-up Dereham Cares.
It aims to support community hubs, created by the government, by arranging deliveries of groceries and medicines to those in need.
Volunteers are needed in the Dereham and Toftwood area to help identify people at risk, collect and deliver prescriptions, co-ordinate other volunteers and to make deliveries to doorsteps.
Ms Webb said: “It’s so important that in these uncertain and worrying times we do what we can to help those most in need, particularly those who may not have family or friends locally to help them.
