Volunteer Groups and Support

The Council are working with groups that have been set up to help vulnerable residents during this difficult period. The Council have taken on the role of coordinating volunteers who have come forward to offer their assistance to anyone who is following the advice of the Prime Minister and are self-isolating.

A number of residents have come forward and have volunteered to help. Please email us with your name and contact details if you would like to offer your support.

We are happy to take calls or receive emails now from vulnerable residents who have had to self-isolate with a view to putting them in touch with volunteer support.

Future Updates

Please follow the guidance that is being provided by the Government and Stay at Home.

We will continue to provide updates to our residents. More than ever, we all need to work together and help each other out for the benefit of our community at this testing time.


Foodbank Update

The Council works in partnership with Blyth Valley Food Bank to act as a depository for food donations and to provide premises for eligible residents to collect their food parcels from Seaton Delaval rather than having to travel through to Blyth.

We are aware that demand for this service is likely to increase in the coming weeks and months and would like to remind residents that we can only provide food parcels to residents referred to us by one of our partner agencies.

Our main partner agencies are listed below:

  • Northumberland County Council NETS Team
  • Local Schools
  • Doctors Surgeries
  • Social Services
  • Job Centre Plus
  • Health Visitors

Increased demand means an increased requirement for donations and on this matter we would encourage residents to make donations to our existing drop off points at our offices in Seaton Delaval, both Lakes and Dales Co Op stores in Seaton Delaval, and the Co Op store in Seaton Sluice.

The Council will make arrangements to collect the donations and deliver them to the food bank warehouse. Alternatively, if any residents would like to make a cash donation to the food bank they can do so by making an electronic bank transfer and entering ‘Food Bank’ in the reference field. Our bank details are shown below:

Sort Code: 60 83 01    Account Number: 20234665

All donations are very much appreciated and are used to provide assistance to Seaton Valley residents.
