Services for Walsall’s vulnerable and older folk during the Coronavirus outbreak

As the Coronavirus situation has developed over the last couple of weeks, services have been formed to support the vulnerable, elderly and isolating during this uncertain and strange time.

Our local hub for advice, help, support and all manner of related services is at Manor Farm Community Association and you can contact them on 0121 380 6690 or email them on

John Morris from Walsall Council explained:

Good afternoon all,

We come to the end of a very strange, unique week.

I hope you are all keeping well and coping with the restrictions in your everyday life, which are new to nearly all of us?

Please see attached the poster, outlining the council’s response to the community regarding the coronavirus situation.

We now have a hotline email and telephone number that goes live today. Anyone in Walsall that needs help can email or call for assistance.

You will also notice that the hub for the East (covering Aldridge, Brownhills, Clayhanger, High Heath, Pelsall, Pheasey, Rushall, Shelfield, Streetly and Walsall Wood) is Manor Farm Community Association.

If you want to volunteer your services to help, please visit

I recommend that over the weekend you should email if you need help, there will be staff working at the community hub, but only at certain times, so please do be patient.

I will check my emails at various times over the weekend and if you contact me I will give best endeavours to pass them on to the relevant service.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered or gone out of their way to help an support the community this week.

Stay safe and have a good weekend.
