Coronavirus in Bristol

At the Cable we’re creating a collection of community resources to centralise and distribute information during the coronavirus pandemic. 

This one focuses on food, including how to support local businesses and how to find help if you or someone you know is in need.

If you are in need of general support regarding coronavirus please call the council’s free hotline between 8.30am and 5pm on 0800 694 0184.
