Due to the third lockdown, this page of helpful links has again be republished to direct people to the relevant contacts and resources whether it be mental health support, Foodbanks or advice.
The original Coronavirus Help facility was set up as a Bridlington Facebook Page and was generously created by Bridlington residents Kimberley Thomas and Martin Frankish.
As the weeks of the first lockdown turned into months, the page became a valuable resource to thousands of people around the area.
This list has been created to support the community, and the Bridlington Echo has partnered with the page to bring the useful resource list to a wider audience.
All of the list was sourced and compiled purely on a voluntary basis under tight deadlines, occasional mistakes can sneak through…for this we apologise in advance.
If you feel any organisation is missing please add this to the comments below.
