Community Help Banner (updated)
During these difficult times, you may find yourself in need of local support groups, community initiatives and information, or details on volunteering opportunities in Surrey and Hampshire.

Eagle Radio’s Community Help is a place where not-for-profit companies and charities can list services that are delivered in a no-contact way and observe the strict guidelines around social distancing. 

It’s also a place for local support groups to let people know what’s available and how to get involved as a volunteer.

If you're a local company looking to continue trading and have adapted the way you do business to suit the current restrictions then you can advertise on our Essential Business Services page.

You can browse using the map and categories below, and if you’d like your initiative, group or charity listed, use the ‘Submit a new Item’ link below or email community@eagleradio.co.uk
