Red Zebra has been helping to co-ordinate the community response to COVID-19 during the current outbreak.

Working with other local community groups, we have been able to offer emergency food parcels, deliveries, support over the phone and advice on what agencies are still available to the vulnerable and isolated. You can find out more about what our Community Services teams have been doing in Whitstable on our Covid-19: Our Response page.
