Support for people within Milton Keynes

Add to Calendar

As the Covid 19 pandemic continues to cause disruption to our everyday lives, several initiatives have sprung up across the city to support local communities:

- MK Council has launched numerous schemes including a Local Support Service to provide help and support to the 758 local people identified through the Government’s ‘extremely vulnerable’ list. In addition, in association with Foodbank MK, the council has created Foodbank Xtra within a larger, temporary storage and distribution centre in Saxon Court. In the first five days of operation 532 food parcels were delivered, compared to the 1,069 delivered in the whole month of February. A Small Business Grant scheme is now also operational, and the council continues to communicate ongoing support. Find out more.
